The irony is if the I.T. department vanished one day, virtually every company (including the one I work for) would grind to a halt in a manner of days, possibly even hours. Only then would they panic.

I'm half convinced that half the pics of people being stupid at the pump (cardboard boxes, laundry baskets, etc) are just a meme...they stage the shot, then fill up their car.

Other half of me doesn't doubt it at all...

50/50 if the pics are coming out of NC, SC, or GA. If it's FL, then it's real...

It's real but they lined the cardboard boxes with plastic.

They paid $5 million to the hackers? WTF?

How do they not have a backup somewhere?
Where are the names of the heads that are getting rolled?
Were is the follow up to this story, it needs full investigation!

Apparently the decryption was taking longer than just restoring backups, so they wasted a bunch of money.

Seems like they were able to recover some of it:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ed/7589909002/

In the Colonial case, investigators were able to track multiple transfers of bitcoin by reviewing a public ledger, according to court documents. The transfers represented payments made by Colonial that had been transferred to an "address" whose password or "private key" was known to the FBI, which then recovered the money.


It's not very technical and I suppose for good reason.
