  1. There are some attention-grabbing deadlines in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity however I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want extra! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

  2. I personally don’t put ANY important info on operating system drives, or drive 0; & haven’t for years! Not only because of ransom & malware, but also because of drive failure…

  3. And this list is just tip of the iceberg. Who knows how many companies do not report ransomware attacks. User education needs to be increased for sadly the end user is the biggest problem. They are the ones that open the infected emails, click on the links on rouge websites and are tricked into allowing fake tech companies access into their computers due to alarming pop ups. Companies have to stop allowing end users to use social media, personal email and surfing the web even during personal time. They need to increase their IT budgets and prepare for the worse before hand.

  4. This is a problem that needs immediate attention and action with STIFF remedies. PC MAYIC seems to be one of the best.
    I use a different approach. When hit with a bad one I pull drive 0 out and replace with a different HD. Then wipe the bad drive and run a backup. Libraries could do this easily with 2 or 3 extra HD’s. Prosecution of malware and virus spreaders can be accomplished if everyone pitches in until it is no longer worth the risk.
