14-Year-Old Japanese Boy Arrested for Creating Ransomware

Japanese authorities have arrested a 14-year-old boy in Osaka, a
prefecture and large port city, for allegedly creating and
distributing a ransomware malware . This is the first such arrest in
Japan which involves a Ransomware-related crime. Ransomware is a piece
of malware that encrypts files on a victim's computer and makes them
inaccessible until the victim pays a ransom, usually in Bitcoins, in
order to get the decryption keys for the encrypted files. Ransomware
has been around for a few  years, but currently, it has become a major
cyber threat for businesses and users across the world. Just last
month, the WannaCry ransomware hit over 300,000 PCs within just 72
hours, wreaking havoc worldwide.

The recent arrest came after the teenager, who is a third-year junior
high school student, created a ransomware virus and uploaded its
source code on the Internet, according to multiple Japanese media.
The student, who admitted to the allegations, combined free encryption
software to develop his own ransomware infection and then uploaded it
to a foreign website and even taught people to download and use it to
spread further for financial gain.
The teen also advertised the website through social media, including
Twitter, telling users "I made ransomware. Please feel free to use
it," the sources said. According to Japanese police, the teen's
ransomware allowed a downloader to infect victims' computers,
demanding payment in digital currency. His ransomware framework has
been downloaded over 100 times. The authorities have not revealed the
identity of the teenager, but have informed that the student just took
about 3 days to create the ransomware program using his personal
computer. The student also told the authorities that he learned to
code on his own and created the ransomware out of curiosity in order
to become famous.

The Japanese police spotted the ransomware during "cyber patrolling"
in January and confiscated the teen's computer after searching his
house in April.
