FBI allegedly had key to decrypt recent US ransomware attacks. So, why was it so slow to use it? RT’s Boom Bust investigates

RT’s Boom Bust is joined by Todd Shipley, President of Dark Intel, to gain some expert insight into both the allegations and the wave of ransomware attacks hitting the nation.
