The best thing against ransomware, etc., is to be very careful on what you click / download and have a good anti-malware software in the first place.

So Janus tried to give other

So Janus tried to give other cybercrime groups the ability to make their own Petya variant through a subscription service. And there were no buyers. So now they want to give the impression that they are now good guys. What a load of crap. They are still making it almost impossible for anyone to use the key they gave out. They are still the bad guys who can't even get other bad guys to give them money. Yep, no honor among thieves.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.
