Appart from the potentional irony involved with being able to buy ransomware, I guess it's no different to any other malware etc that is up for sale. At the end of the day making money out of your efforts is what most do 9-5 five days a week or more.

While this is disturbing, it's nothing new at this point. RAAS has been around for ages and won't go away as long as people keep paying the ransom.
