How I got tech support scammers infected with Locky

tech support scam webpage
A few days ago, I received a panicked call from my parents who had somehow managed to land on a (now defunct) web page (snapshot here) claiming they had been infected by Zeus. This horrible HTML aggregate had it all: audio message with autoplay, endless JavaScript alerts, a blue background with cryptic file names throwing us back to Windows' BSoD days, and yet somehow it displayed a random IP address instead of the visitor's one.
After everyone had a good laugh on Twitter, I decided to call them to know more about what they hoped to accomplish.
