Data Held Hostage: The Ransomware Epidemic

Ransomware has been a constant cyberthreat since the early 2000s, although the first acknowledged instance was as early as 1989 when a file-encrypting Trojan was distributed on compromised diskettes, coupled with demands for a $189 payment. If you thought ransomware was a threat that only impacts technophobic grandmothers, reckless teenagers, and other home computer users, […]

November 2019 – Microsoft Patch Tuesday

November is bringing arctic winds to many parts of the United States, but as we sit and shiver and try to stay warm (and in my case, dream of the sunny Caribbean islands where I’ll be sailing later in the month), the hackers keep on hacking and the attackers keep on attacking, exploiting whatever vulnerabilities […]
