PSA - Backup anything that's important to you
« on: March 05, 2021, 04:49:23 PM »
their is a new variant ransomware going around I witnessed to many PC being infected and unfortunately some didn't have backups at all and others had backups running but not properly configured so their most important files where lost

a copy on the same HD is not a backup
paying for a backup service doesn't means they actually get backed up

be vigilant and double check that your backup serice is configured properly

Is one anti-malware enough, or do you need 2 doses?

We should all turn off our computers for 14 days, that'll stop it in its tracks.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
