Chilling, welcome to the future.

This is why I backup our entire LAN to three different devices each day.

I also backup our entire LAN to seven rotating external hard drives, each once every seven weeks, so that we can rollback up to six
weeks if needful.

And our google based email does not allow EXE files inside attached ZIP files.

She was driving home. Her "Windows 10 PC" was obviously NOT a PC but
some weak computer running lackluster tiny apps (less features due to
less code to keep the app size down). No mention of what e-mail client
she uses on her tablet. Desktop e-mail clients don't permit .exe
attachments to get extracted without alerting the user. So what e-mail
client what this, ahem, high-tech user using?

If you can reach network drives then so can ransomware. Do you look at
the logs of what files (by names) got backed up?

She was driving home.


The article says "“Elli” from our accounting department was trying to go
home."

Looks like she was still in the office, but running around to get ready to
head out.

If someone opens attachments in e-mails, and doesn't really know from
whom those e-mails are sent, that is not being very smart.

What does this last have to do with anything ? Google can make whatever
rules it wants with its own software. That doesn't mean anyone else
should follow their example.
