Re: The person behind
Group IB out of Russia says it's "highly likely" the attackers behind Bad Rabbit are the same ones who launched NotPetya in June of 2017 against Ukraine energy, financial, and telecommunciations organizations.

Re: Backup and Restore Protocols ONCE AGAIN
Right, the person I was replying to has deleted their posts so my reply may seem out of context but your comments about isolating systems is on piont, as well as your mention of prevention so the down time doesn't occur is the first place.

Adobe Flash installer?
 

"No exploits were used, so the victim would have to manually execute the malware dropper, which pretends to be an Adobe Flash installer."

Does anybody still install Adobe Flash installer? I though it is already dead. I guess will see it for a while.

"Bad Rabbit Ransomware"

As like the others, ransomware players think that this is a very lucrative job, so it will never stop.

Re: Backup and Restore Protocols ONCE AGAIN
"length of time this could cause widespread travel delays and numerous other problems"

I agree, that is one of the reasons is prevention strategies rather than recovery methods after the attack has to be focus.

"Backup and Restore Protocols "
I think backup and restores is less likely a solution here, it needs to be isolated systems to avoid troubles after ransomware attack. To prevent it , that is another game.
