St. Louis Libraries Affected By Major Ransomware Attack

Ransomware continues to be utilized by internet criminals all over the world. Earlier this week, the libraries of St. Louis, Missouri, have been crippled by a ransomware attack. Public terminals provided by the library to the poor and vulnerable of the city had to be shut down as a result.

What’s worse, the library system apparently has no backups taken before the ransomware attack so it can not easily restore the files from backup copies, the usual method of dealing with ransomware. If proper backups had been taken and saved, the ransomware infection would not be much of a problem to deal with.
