A Government facility in Riviera Beach, Florida voted to hand over 65 #bitcoins or $600,000 for their data after a hacker took over their computers when an employee clicked on a malicious email link three weeks ago.
Still on #Ransomeware . In the event of an attack, as much as you can, stay calm and try these tips. Be sure to register a complaint to law enforcement. -Isolate the infected system. - Turn off other computers and devices. - Secure your backups. - If you’re a home user, contact your local FBI office or local U.S. Secret Service office to request assistance immediately. - If at work, immediately report ransomware incidents to your IT helpdesk or security office. - Ensure you change all system passwords once the ransomware has been removed.
Even a thief can’t find my documents. “I’m so 😕 disorganized” “Finding vital documents is like looking for a needle in a haystack” “Security is important but I don’t think I need it because the way my office is no one will find anything”
While the above statements means no thief can find his or her way round your office, it also means that very soon you will also not know where things are kept.
Now if you’ve ever been in a hurry to find a file and even hijacked some workers to assist you in doing this, but you ended up looking angry, frustrated and stressed out like this 😨😨🤔😥😓. It’s about time you took action.

An increasing number of small corporations are being held ransom by hackers around the world for their own data and email servers. Ransoms often valued at 1 million USD in Bitcoin are demanded to return control to companies. This shows the drastic need for distributed ledger data management from blockchain. Does your company have a secure system to avoid ransomeware with multiple offsite email and data backups? #blockchain#distributedledger#dlt#data#ransomeware#bitcoin#btc#hackers#backups#corporate#business
One of the biggest security threats come through email messages. Often, malicious people will send phishing emails, which attempt to obtain confidential company information by installing malware into the network or redirecting to compromised domains.
The most expensive component of a cyber attack is information loss, which represents 43 percent of costs. (Accenture)
What’s the first line of defense to preventing information loss due to cyber attacks?
A.) Your IT team
B.) Your data infrastructure (servers, computers, network, etc.)
The answer is YOU.
Are you and your colleagues familiar with how to protect yourselves against: social engineering, vishing, phishing, browser hijacking, shoulder surfing, and data loss?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, your current IT team isn’t doing ANYTHING to help your business prevent a cyber attack.
At Industrious Tech Solutions we’re more than just IT, we’re advocates for keeping your sensitive data safe and educating business owners and their employees on how to safely handle private information in a digital environment.
Per quasi tre settimane, Baltimora ha lottato con un attacco informatico da parte di estorsori digitali che ha congelato migliaia di computer, chiuso la posta elettronica e interrotto le vendite immobiliari, le bollette dell'acqua, gli avvisi sulla salute e molti altri servizi.
Ma ecco cosa non sanno i dipendenti e gli abitanti della città frustrati: una componente chiave del malware che i criminali informatici utilizzati nell'attacco sono stati sviluppati a spese dei contribuenti a breve distanza dalla Baltimore-Washington Parkway presso l'Agenzia per la sicurezza nazionale, secondo gli esperti di sicurezza informati sul caso.
Dal 2017, quando l'N.S.A. perso il controllo dello strumento, EternalBlue, è stato raccolto da hacker di stato in Corea del Nord, in Russia e, più recentemente, in Cina, per tagliare un sentiero di distruzione in tutto il mondo, lasciando miliardi di dollari di danni. Ma nell'ultimo anno, l'arma cibernetica è tornata indietro e ora si sta presentando nel cortile di casa dell'N.S.A. #nsa#ethernalblue#cyberattack#spoofing#malware#phishing#privacy#ransomeware#hack#hacking#hacked#hacker#virus#ransomeware#secure#startup#startuplife#safety#metasploit#databreach#secure #security#safe#privacy #intel#tech#geek#technology#marketing#digital

A global ransomware attack could cost $193 billion and affect more than 600,000 businesses worldwide, according to a new report.
The report is called ‘Bashe Attack: Global infection by contagious malware’ and has been compiled by a Singapore-based public-private initiative called Cyber Risk Management. Lloyds of London is one of the initiatives founding members and posted the findings on its website.
It involves a scenario where an attack is launched through an infected email. Once opened it’s forwarded to all contacts and within 24 hours all the data on 30 million devices worldwide is encrypted. This would result in companies worldwide being forced to pay ransom to decrypt their data or to replace infected devices.

True improvement doesn’t come out of the blues.
First access what’s on ground.
Then evaluate is it the best.
True evaluation comes with measuring against a bench mark what you hope to achieve if it’s at your work place; who you hope to be if it’s personal; how well you want your clients to be satisfied if it’s in relation to your customers.
Now if you rank high it’s a good thing.
But........ Don’t stop there.
You know have a self imposed limit break it.
If you’ve not reached it, don’t beat yourself up.

e WinRarer ransomware can enter your personal computer through various ways. Interestingly enough, the malicious payload file can hide inside torrents for games. One such example is Battlefield 1 and games that runDenuvo protection, as pirated versions can always be filled with malware. The protection makes it harder for people to crack it and when people see there is a working version they download it as if it’s hot bread. Another example of such distribution is the MM Locker Ransomware.
note:- Be careful while downloading anything from internet..........
