WannaCry Defense

WannaCry Defense

As with all ransomware, the defense is simple:  Backup, backup, backup.  The fresher your backups are, the less work it will be to reconstruct your data and the less temptation you will feel to pay the criminals.

Backup, backup, backup.

Microsoft is blaming the NSA, and the NSA is blaming Microsoft.  A pox on both their houses.

Backup, backup, backup.

Anti-virus can’t help you until they catch up, and can’t help you again once it starts to mutate.

Backup, backup, backup.

Someone found a “kill switch”. By accident.  Uh-huh.
Trust that, do you?

Backup, backup, backup.
