    An entire local government is capitulating to the demands of extortionists. The City of Baltimore is said to have known about this problem for months and did nothing, now they are losing desperately needed tax revenue, and is looking like it will pay the ransom to get their servers back. Expect more of this in the future.

    The past Mayor is under investigation and is said pending indictment. The current acting mayor is a black man who is in over his head.

    It is relevant because Baltimore will not elect anyone other than someone black. And the mayor "should look like the people he or her represent."

    Now if you used that same logic and applied it to other juristictions, cities, counties or even the country it's [​IMG] Basically, the politics there and in DC is: since the city is majority black, then no matter what the mayor will/should be black. It's identity politics. If the mayor is found to be a shitbag then it's the wracist society that is targeting them. (see the outgoing mayor of Baltimore.)

    It's all about skin color and power and nothing about actually running the city or fixing problems.

    The way baltimore is going it could end up allot like Detroit. As for these l33t haxxors I wonder what they are going to spend all that bitcoin on , if the mayor ends up paying them.

    One is in michigan, the other is in maryland. Baltimore is known on the drug scene for lots of herion its where the tv show the Wire was filmed and set in.

    Other then that, yeah they could be interchangable.

    I like Baltimore :( it's a rough town but it's alot of fun too.

    It was less affected by the Rust Belt Collapse than Detroit. But it's still srsly economically depressed af.

    Just so everyone knows, Baltimore is on the bounce. It is nowhere near the shithole it was, even 15 years ago (see: The Wire).

    Companies pay ransomware demands all the time. It's a lot cheaper to pay some sheep milker in Yugoslavia $300 in buttcoins than to hire a recovery team.

    Regardless, the question is always "where were their backups" and "how does their IT director still have a job" and the answer to both is "I don't know"

    Why would you wait until past the deadline to actually move on this issue. Is my point.
    About the IT director, it's a guy that's a minor admin at WorldStar.

    Red tape, misplaced faith in your backups, lack of budget, lack of staff, lack of awareness, lack of skill

    This is very common though. The con artists are at a very distinct advantage in that paying them off will cost a fraction of fixing it yourself.

    The article said the l33t haxx0rs wanted 106,000 USD in bitcoin plus 10,000$ for every day that passed. If the city pays the ransom do the hackers usually get the full amount they are asking for or does it get talked down?

    They leave a backdoor, get the full amount, and do it again.

    These l33t hax0rs got a really good gig going unless they get caught by law enforcement.

    I favorite ransomware attacks are when they target police departments and force them to pay. The image of some overweight cop in Colorado at the mercy of a belarusian drug addict in a soviet era apartment block in Minsk is very funny.

    Oh if you think this shit is bad, much worse is coming down the pipe. Internet-of-Things (IoT) is a huge thing these days, and I've read several articles that implied that adding wireless functionality to medical devices (such as pacemakers) would be a FANTASTIC idea. Yeah, doing that would allow medical care providers to more easily monitor your situation. However, it might also allow hackers to ransomware the device if some dumbass second-rate engineer gets it into their thick fucking head to use the stock 802.11 wireless standard, which would make said device searchable on any wireless router. And if a ransomware attack happens at a hospital and it affects multiple patients, then let's just say it'll be worth a lot to somebody because the hospital will be liable for any number of things if someone dies as a result.

    TL;DR Those chain e-mails prophesying doom upon people are looking to get a lot less funny. "PAY US NOW OR WE'LL SET YOUR PACEMAKER TO HUMMINGBIRD" might be a real thing in the future.
