For a ransomware that affected over 300,000 PCs worldwide, the attackers behind WannaCrypt may not be very happy with themselves right now. The malware came with a $300 (in Bitcoin) ransom, which was increased to $600 on Tuesday, and yet the attackers seem to have raised only about $77,618 (over Rs. 49 lakh) right now. While that’s no small sum, it’s well below what some experts estimated the attackers would make. Potential earnings for the hackers have been estimated at tens of millions of dollars.
