“gov’t hasn’t stooped to this… YET” Ah, but the RIAA is loving the idea! Shhhh - please!
Yes. And it’s a shame that ransomwares do this at all. I just wish we could find and sue those folks who do this to recover all the lost productivity. Wish they’d take THAT responsibility since they seem to only want “redistribution of wealth” - fine. Capitalism. But I want mine, too.
In the solution, do users need to access their computers thru a new UserID? (We always install one of those because so many Ransomwares of the past crippled the infected UserID and only another admin-type to do most-certain restoration).
