Data for Ransom

Don’t pay the ransom! Instead, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of sufferings.” 1 Peter 5:8-9
This article is over a year old. “The Community of Christ Church in Hillsboro paid up $570 this week to decrypt its data. We began the process of figuring out what we can do about it and discovered that the only thing we could do was to pay the ransom, said the pastor, who struggled with figuring out how to use Bitcoin.” #ransomware #church Digital Trends

Ransomware cases are increasing dramatically with several smaller targets like school districts and churches caught up in the malware act.
