Q: did your school get a computer attack?

so Monday morning, the school internet is down and all the teachers are complaining except the international department foreign teachers, even though we are all own the same network. Our department uses windows 10 with updates and the rest of the school still uses XP from the last century.

 

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/05/17/us-should-take-some-blame-for-massive-cyberattack-chinese-media-says.htm

 

Never mind that we torrented a free copy of windows 10 because the school is too cheap to pay for it, it is  the americans fault our systems are down. nothing to do with copy-write or being cheap, yeah right.

 

nobody rights code for xp anymore and 360 did not copy the update to fight it in time to save China from the problem but micro soft had the update to stop this in March.

 

Hell, even Russia uses legal updates and did not get hit, or so they say, but China will the high tech super power of the world by 2040 according to the CCP.

Sorry ambi, but you are into an 'old-news' .

 

I couldn't find title I was reading last week on the same subject by passing 4th page at 'Zero'. That's 'old' by all parameters. 

 

Today-o:

 

"It's Much Bigger Than WannaCry": New Stealthy Cyberattack Could Dwarf Last Week's Global Worm Epidemic

Another large-scale, stealthy cyberattack is underway on a scale that could dwarf last week's assault on computers worldwide, a global cybersecurity firm told AFP on Wednesday. Rather than freeze files demanding a ransom, Adylkuzz uses infected computers to mine virtual currency..."As it is silent and doesn't trouble the user, the Adylkuzz attack is much more profitable for the cyber criminals."

Cyber Attacks Are The Perfect Trigger For A Stock Market Crash

"The NSA and its Silicon Valley partners literally created this monster; a monster which has the capacity to attack otherwise secure banking networks like SWIFT. This begs the question - how much of the global banking system and global stock exchanges are open to attack with these same NSA exploits. I would suggest that ALL of them are."

China is slowly dismantling America’s spy operations

China has killed or imprisoned more than a dozen CIA sources since 2010 — and US intelligence officials aren’t quite sure how the moles were discovered. The intelligence breach set off a hunt that zeroed in on a former CIA operative who is now living in another Asian country. US officials haven’t gathered enough information to bring charges, the New York Times reported...

Yes, but thankfully we have an amazing team of I.T. guys from Taiwan (and some tech-savvy teachers).

We were able to sandbox it and unmap shared drives before it spread.
It's funny to think about.
You can have all the cracked software in the world, but it'll be worthless if you don't pay a good I.T. to keep it optimal.

Software? You mean 'Windings' software?

A: That would be an awful experience. I would call your embassy asap
A:That would be an awful experience. I would call your embassy asap, they might be able to suggest something or give you a temporary replacement or something. I'm sure they would have seen this before.You may also need something from the PSB to say that you still have a valid visa in order to leave the country. Do you at least have a copy of your visa and passport front page, or can you get one?  If you have been working here your employer would probably have copies. In the mean time, turn the place upside down trying to find your passport.Good luck mate.   -- Stiggs
