Ransomware hits St Louis libraries

Well, ransomeware hit another target - libraries. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-38731011

 

This isn't anything new. The criminals behind this have even been hitting hospitals in the hope of a quick extortion. Get yourself some external USB hard drives and copy your critical files like accounts, family photos, etc. off to it.

 

There are also fake ransomeware scams going around; software that says you've been encrypted, hoping you will panic in to paying money when actually, you haven't been hit at all.
