comment How does the attacker to ransomware get the password?
Easily automated @bayo15. And the key pair creation happens on the attacker's machine - not the victim's.

comment A fledgling idea: Relational Encryption
Lol - sorry for possibly scaring you with the comments. I was trying to initially decide whether it would be on topic over on Cryptography Stack Exchange, or whether it would be closed as a dupe. Probably worth having a look over there, as they cover theory and concepts of crypto, whereas we pretty much only look at implementation of it here.

Mike - that is a good point. While I might excuse it as 'this was back in the old days when things were different' - I think I should have answered properly. However in reading that question now, it deserves to be closed anyway :-)
