Storage on AWS: What's new, is it too complicated? Can it help defend against ransomware?

WORM - Write Once Read Maybe?

So curious to the WORM implementation. Are we walking optical storage? Storage on hard drives with the read only flag set? Supposed permissions on the Linux server preventing anything but read only? What if the file truly changes?

ANYTHING online can get attacked by ransomware with probably the exception of Optical Storage which has its own issues as well. Does not mean they cannot steal the files and hold THOSE for ransom (I mean who really needs to encrypt files if you have all of their sensitive files?)

Maybe it is too late to think properly, But I see this as possible misleading marketing.
