Good Grief! Ransomware gang has only gone and pwned the NRA – or so it claims

What we never hear about

It would be very helpful if we heard how these ransomware infections were administered - most of the time these days it's done by sending the target lots of emails that they think they must open and read, but we never hear how this is being done, only that it "worked" - one factor that I see is that weather makes us a target. We had a cold front go through yesterday with only a couple of inches of rain and a few tornadoes but our virus deliveries went up about 800% locally ... tons of neworder.pdf.exe files, but if the NRA were a target then they probably started getting emails offering to "provide" details of Biden's sexual corruption and Chinese share ownership.

It might help everyone if the infection attempt methods were documented, not just the results.
