Sandcrawler PSA: Interesting Stuff to Read

If you use a computer, you should read this.

This research is important as we expect adversaries to begin utilizing these capabilities in ransomware going forward. This blog post focuses on two avenues of thought - that our past is chock full of successful malware, and that successful cyber extortionists will look to the past to create new and evolving threats going forward.
Even if you don't get ALL the technical parts, you can glean enough to make you a hard(er) target. Nobody's perfect....

Hat Tip: Jon.
