    Heck, if everyone was still using MS-DOS 4.0, the darned exploit would never have gotten written in the first place <spits into spittoon>

    I see MS blaming the Gov't. for hoarding vulnerabilities, but nothing about MS going after them for financial compensation.
    You're right there. I've connected this two statements without carefully reading articles. But then who read this stuff carefully?

    and now we have Jaff

    New Ransomware 'Jaff' Spotted; Malware Groups Pushing 5M Emails Per Hour To Circulate It - Slashdot

    Forcepoint Security Labs reports that malicious emails carrying Jaff are being cranked out at a rate of 5 million an hour on Thursday, or 13 million in total at the time it wrote up a blog post about the new threat.

    Oh, crapola!

    Thankfully I've had all my data files on an external drive for quite some time. External has just been pulled from my machine and I'm doing what I can to prepare, just in case.

    Firing blanks - mostly!


    The thing about malware is that the authors do not have an "Insider Program" - a large network of like-minded miscreants to test their works of mass dissemination - thankfully.

    Therefore there are essential flaws in most exploits that have ever been released.

    I would guess that when they get near to release, these authors are so excited and flushed with hubris that they go off prematurely - so to speak - and another flawed exploit hits the WWW.

    The thing about that view is that every "PEW!" is a new PC being infected with 1 of half a dozen active Ransomwares somewhere in the world.
