Root Cause v. Symptoms
This is a great effort to help those who have already fallen victim to phishing with ransomware. But I worry that not focusing on the root cause and rather the symptoms isn't sufficient for the types of outcomes we so desprately need.

99% of ransomware is delivered to users via phishing, solving the root cause rather than the symptom (malware / ransomware) is the best way to preempt damage.

99% of Ransomware delivered via phishing
