Ransomware…

After 30 odd years in IT it still amazes me people will not take care of basic protection in their environments. Security settings, patches, anti-virus. Nope. Even after previous ransomware attacks this one is still successful. Even in big corporations.

And please don’t go the “it won’t happen on my Mac/ Linux/ TRS-80 machines” way. You know it is coming … Some environments are more secure like Mac OS with sandbox and just not running Windows file sharing, but attacks are more and more ingenious. Even your Intel processor has built-in risks and it takes just a link in an email. Yes I know you were just curious about that viagra ad and did not really intended to order…

Get some basic discipline and IT-hygiene ! That is the real issue.
