According to the Senate Bill 1137 proposal, “knowingly introducing ransomware will be punishable by imprisonment in a county jail”. The jail sentence for such an offense can range from two to your four years. Additionally, there will be a fine attached to this sentence, albeit the amount will not exceed US$10,000. All in all, these guidelines are not out of the ordinary for an offense potentially impacting thousands of computer users.
