    Sounds like the porn companies clamoring for air time by offering porn contracts to newly legal girls and various celebs the world over. "WE'VE GOT THE RETURNS HARRRRRR LOOOOOOOK OVER HERE EVERYONE WE'RE HACKERS PAY ATTENTION TO US"

    I wouldn't be surprised if "they" have the returns but lol @ bitcoins as ransom payment. I hope the docs get released anyway honestly.
