Re: Banning malware is not an option!
You are mistaking. The good guys already have lots of malware. Just take a look at their computers. It is as simply as that. Therefore, the proposed wording is slightly off. Fixed version:
"label the possession
and intent to useof ransomware in a malicious manneras a misdemeanor"
Then you simply start, randomly, to arrest and convict people you do not like and put them away for 10 years. That also solves the problem of "...making something illegal doesn't help unless you can catch and prosecute those who break the law". You are all criminals. You know it, I know it, we all know it. Now, get with the program.
