Re: Backup and Restore Protocols ONCE AGAIN
40 minutes is pretty good, not sure how big your network is or how your users/org would be effected by that down time but certainly you've been inconvenienced.  Also, if someone in the transportation sector is down for any length of time this could cause widespread travel delays and numerous other problems for both the organization and its customers.  So just one example of why this is important news and how a ransomware attack could affect a large group of people.  Your comments seem a bit flippant and arrogant and certainly don't add any value to the topic at hand.

"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.

"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.

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

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.

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.
