GandCrab Hackers show some Heart

Syria was at one stage known for being one of the birthplaces of human civilization. Recently the beleaguered nation is more known for the terrible civil war. As of April 2018, more than 465,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, over a million injured, and over 12 million, that being half the country's pre-war population, have been displaced.

Besides, it is very likely that linkey-search.com collects various data related to user's browsing activity. The mentioned rogue set-ups target popular web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.
