Hi Dmitry Bestuzhev
Very Very Intresting Article,
I was just recently reading a couple of the articles here and on the threatpost website,
I also noticed that you say that the people who are behind this have used real names in the subroutines that they coded in "VB" Visual Basic,
Do you think that this could be a clue as to who is behind this,
Do you think that the people who have created this virus are relatively new to say programming in VB and that is why they could be using real names for now until they learn of better ways and or ideas as to hide/encrypt there subroutines/modules, Or could the names be a link as to who coded what part of the subroutines within the program.
Could this be possibly part of something bigger thats to come from the people whom have created this.
And finally i have to agree that the image at the bottom is quite intresting in the fact that they seem to be going after the BitCoin wallets,
I am going to be totally honest,
I dont really know that much about BitCoin and there wallets and how they work,
But judging by the entries in the last image, it could be really worrying for people to read about this who have a BitCoin wallet on there DeskTop or Mobile Phone...
Again Thank You for great article
