Re: How many decades and this is still happening?
Seen the blackbyte guys do a company. They had a smart guy get them in but the virus guys were morons.
They did a slash and burn and required a bare metal restore of everything. No way in hell we’re they getting anything because there was no infrastructure to restore.
In the old days, they encrypt the data and sell you the key. If you pay, you are back.
They claimed they had data. Tough sh$1t. It was all public info anyway so still no money.
I can only hope they could not pay their bill and got an ass kicking for it.
