  1. This guy stopped potentially tens of billions of dollars in losses. The guy's a goddamn hero as far as I'm concerned. This is a disgrace and a stab in the back. To the thousands of security personnel who work everyday. Trying to protect us from the bad guys. Government doesn't know it's ass from a hole in the ground apparently. :/

  2. Maybe He Helped create Wanna Cry ransomware.???????
