Re: Tossers.

The fundamental problem is lack of robustness at the victim end. Ransomware (like any other attack that typically starts at the workstation) only gets to affect a corporation because it can spread internally. There are many controls that can in principle contribute to restricting its spread, but they're just not usually implemented.

Most corporate networks are wide open: a hard-ish shell full of holes surrounding an ultra- soft centre.
