Which countries hackers are making more money?

Hi All

 

Well, we know that cybercrime is doing better than legitimate organisation economically.  But which countries hackers are doing better than others?

Does crime still pay?

John,

Reading that article carefully, it appears to be only about white hat hackers with no mention of black hats (criminals). In fact it also fails to mention the distinction. 
Oh, and yes, crime does still pay. See ransomeware

@CraginS   It looks as though it is going to be far worst - look at this ruling against an insurer:
