Ransomware Attacks Are Testing Resolve of Cities Across America
This has been the summer of crippling ransomware attacks. Wilmer — a town of almost 5,000 people just south of Dallas — is one of 22 cities across Texas that are simultaneously being held hostage for millions of dollars after a sophisticated hacker, perhaps a group of them, infiltrated their computer systems and encrypted their data. The attack instigated a statewide disaster-style response that includes the National Guard and a widening F.B.I. inquiry.

More than 40 municipalities have been the victims of cyberattacks this year, from major cities such as Baltimore, Albany and Laredo, Tex., to smaller towns including Lake City, Fla. Lake City is one of the few cities to have paid a ransom demand — about $460,000 in Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency — because it thought reconstructing its systems would be even more costly. ...

We ain’t heard tell of no Ransomware here in Mississippi. Is it anything like Tupperware? If so, I could use some of the larger pieces for freezing possum.

WOLFF: So the No Ransom Project is a collaboration between a bunch of law enforcement agencies - primarily in Europe but also all over the world - and private companies that develop tools to help people reverse the effects of ransomware without having to pay ransoms. And the law enforcement agencies provide an interface for people who've been affected to go online, upload one of their encrypted files or the ransom note that's been left behind, so they can figure out which strain of ransomware they're dealing with. We do know that people are using them. We know that they're working - not all the time. They can't be used for every strand of malware.

More reason to avoid so much dependency on systems and their promoters. Save paper, save time, etc? More paper than ever, time lost fixing the time savers. Makes you wonder when the strong man will come along with a plan to save us.

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" when it comes to ransomware, as this infomercial from Norton will tell you.
