Ransomware Authors Offer to Donate Ransom to A Worthy Cause

Well this is different: a ransomware strain promises to donate your paid ransom to charity. “CryptMix demands approximately 5 Bitcoins (approximately $2,200) from victims, more than the going rate. Marks are given the consolation that their money will ‘go towards a worthy cause’, at least if the boiler-plate ransomware demand from the self-styled ‘Charity Team’ is taken at face value.” Ransomware authors aren’t the highest on my credibility index.
