[LMB] OT: Ransomware.

It depends on how the backup is done. If the backup is individual files that are incrementally backed up all you would lose is the new data since the encryption was put on. The big problems happen if it’s a long time between when the encryption takes place and when you find out about it.
Systems and backups should be checked often but, of course, that costs money. Critical systems should be air gapped.
What bothers me the most is the rumor that a ransom has been paid.

I do not understand this. Aren't the systems constantly backed up so
that they could be scrubbed and the data restored?
