Criminals infected 70 percent of storage devices tied to closed-circuit TVs in Washington DC eight days before the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
The ransomware infection downed 123 of its 187 network video recorders, each controlling up to four CCTVs, and forced the city to wipe its affected IT systems which it says did not include deeper componentry of the Washington DC network.***** Moderator's Note *****
Guilty pleasure: I love stories that show how overdependence on computers leads to more problems.
Just wait for the "Internet Of Things" to arrive: you'll try to open your refrigerator door, and hear a message telling you your meat will be thawing unless you fork over a couple of hundred clams.
