Hacked! Ransomware Infection Hits Computers in 99 Countries

According to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Massive Ransomware infection hits computers in 99 countries


Hospitals and other organizations have been hacked for money. Please take a look at video hosted by the BBC about a British guy who couldn’t get his surgery done because the hospital had been hacked. He is waiting for the systems to come back online. What do you think of these events? How can organizations protect themselves? Do you think that they should pay outrageous sums of money to get their systems back online? Comments?

Library Students…I want to hear your thoughts. Please read the above article from the BBC about the Ransomware. Please blog by providing 3 points from your reading and experiences.

Happy Reading!
