Seems good to me, let them keep using the tapped Messenger app, the more we lock up the better.

Meat plant gets ransomware attack and pays the bill even though they reverted to backups.

What is the point in having backups if you're just going to pay the ransom? I mean, it isn't as though you're going to trust the system the "unlocked" the ransomware encryption.

Depending on how new/old the backups are they may have the ransomware as well. It’s not uncommon to hear that the software installs long before it is executed to make sure that backups are also compromised.

True, but if you can get to the files in a non-encrypted format and then you can restore. You would assume the VM/server OS they were on was compromised so you'd build a new server clean and copy the safe/scanned files from the backups on to it.

I wonder how many of the ransomware attacks happen on linux servers? I'm guessing none other than connected storage to a Windows machine.

I suspect the U.S. is about to become the ongoing victim of this stuff. Get ready for a lot of eye-rolling and Bitcoin movement.

Oh, and higher prices on *everything*!

Chemical plant fire in Illinois.

Don't know if we have any folks over there, but if we do I hope they're ok!

What a mess.

I’ve worked on a couple projects for environmental cleanups from fires like that. Secondary containment can’t do much when you have aerial distribution and all that water. Naturally they are always on top of a hill….
