Major ransom network hacking going on today.

The FBI is trying to keep the quite which is why it is not on the news. Hundreds if not thousands of companies, schools, and hospitals have been hacked and are being held for ransom. A local school district I know of is being asked 2.3M to be released.

The hackers have completely taken over the networks and locked everyone out while taking control of all their data. This is a large nationwide issue. I am not sure how or where the flaw comes from. This local district is leaning heavily towards school not being open when they planned at this point. I have no idea if they were able to access the backups and take them over also but it is looking like they did.

The school is telling people not to remote into the system as it might allow them to access them remotely.

I am sure this will become news once some time has passed and they can figure where it is coming from.

This school district is in Kansas? Got any other details? OS, attack vector, etc?

Weird. Wonder if this is a reboot of the gandcrab stuff that just got shut down. Sounds awfully familiar.

I hope it's true. Something has to wake companies up to the massive network security issues the majority have within their systems. My former company does right at $1B of revenue in the U.S. and we got hacked and it shut down all of our production for about three weeks.

Too many companies see IT security as a tempting line item on the budget to trim but it can and often does backfire hugely.

The one I personally know of is. It all went down today. My source told me that a hospital on the east coast that also got hit had to completely shut their doors and transfer everyone out to other locations. They had no control over any of their systems. They said this has hit a very large amount of institutions and is being kept hush hush on orders of the FBI.

A buddy of mine is a high level network security guy, (or at least was, before his stroke), and he was pitching Sands Gaming (Venetian, Palazzo, etc.) that their perimeter was not secure and they didn't want to spend the money in the current FY, and that maybe next year they'd take another look at it. Sheldon Adelson, who owns most of the stock and is a huge Zionist was in Israel and publicly said that Israel should nuke Iran. A week or so later they had a huge DOS attack that shutdown their player list access, email, POS, reservations, gaming compliance, virtually anything that goes over a cat cable. Cost 'em 10's of millions $ in lost revenue, and a couple million more to harden their network.

Iran is not a bunch of barefoot goat herders, they've got lots of world class scientists and engineers. That being said, I'm still impressed that the Hebs got Stuxnet over on them.

Companies bitch and moan about China ripping off their technology and proprietary info through government funded espionage projects (and rightfully so), but at the same time, they don't want to allocate the appropriate resources to protect themselves so at the end of the day fuck 'em.

I put up a short video on YouTube about it. See if it gets taken down but you heard it here first. YouTube has flagged the video already . There is an update. I was told a local Dr. did pay the ransom to get his system back.

There is and has been Data Centers all over the U.S. being built for this very thing. It is a search and destroy firewall that charges a fee. Which, of course, will be paid by consumers with a "protection" fee. I so happy with my meat, potatoes and gravy wiring these beohemits to fire up the bad guys.

I can see some school district standing something up and if it ain't broke they aren't fixing it 6 years later it's really broke now.

Second thought, it's so old fashioned to actually run a server now days what happens if one of the cloud vendors has the issue?

Shit, go look at our F-35 fighter jet then go look at one clone China made that mirrors it. Itís really bad when a company like Lockheed or Boeing gets their top secret plans hacked.
