Re: In today's news...

The virus should be an WNCRY, .WCRY, .WNRY, and .WNCRYPT in order the virus are going to be operate it need to be execute/open first (based on malware analysis team out there unless they change it to something else it will be most likely), just be extra cautious and ALWAYS double check the file you want to open. In case you got hit, unplug you internet cable to prevent it spreading to other device.

As Microsoft said win 10 that have the latest updated are unlikely to get infected they already have patch for it (but still don't get careless just because you are safe). But for win 10 below such as 8, 7 or xp you can be infected.

If you are still afraid to get infected get your usb install your os there set the boot to your usb, and encrypt your main hdd and external hdd. If its too much of a hassle than just encrypt important fild etc. Its better to encrypt yourself then other encrypting it.

Encrypt files yourself - get them encrypted by ransomware, double encryption :D

Also, live OS is a good idea, as long as you don't have permanent​ read/write space for storing settings and data on USB that can be encrypted. Just a configured run everywhere OS, that can be lost as it's a matter of burning new image on that USB.

I think we had this talk before... But I am not sure.
Anyway, live distro that doesn't need to keep permanent data - safe.
USB/external OS that needs to keep permanent data - exactly same thing as OS on internal drive.

Also, as super_slicer said, full weekly backup on external drive that is connected once a week to create copy should cover this issue.

Most good antivirus/anti malwares should be able to detect it by now. But if you are unlucky, first try grabbing decryptors from Kaspersky's site (or other secure sources) and panic after that won't work xD

Re: In today's news...

And here I was thinking of the artist Dio.

I can't keep up with the weebery.

Re: In today's news...

Edit: When you say artist, do you perhaps mean musician?
I did want to note that, unrelated to the anime character, calling Dio an 'artist' would also get you suspicious looks from anyone properly into metal.

Re: In today's news...

Yeah, occurred to me that language barrier issues might be at play. People like myself usually associate the term artist with persons such as this:
Spoilered so I don't have to see it again.

Or the far more wonderful people that draw porn and cartoons.

I wish that dumb vacuum masturbation stereotype wasn't a thing, as well as the one about pool or hot-tub suction holes. Get out of my nightmares, water pressure.

Re: In today's news...

It's not often that a five-year-old news story catches my attention, but I suspect most of you will see why this headline reeled me in: "Mao Sugiyama Cooks, Serves Own Genitals At Banquet In Tokyo."

I believe the title of the article speaks for itself.
From the article.

"But Calorie Lab called Japanese authorities, who deemed the banquet legal because there is no law against cannibalism in the country."

Deemed the banquet legal because there is no law against cannibalism in the country

there is no law against cannibalism in the country

....why, Japan, why?

The filthy rice farmers had to eat something after the BRAVE HONORRRABRE SAMURAI were finished plundering their hovels of rice.

Re: In today's news...

I think it's more disturbing that a monetary transaction took place.

Is there no law against purchasing body parts in Japan?
