The Week In Ransomware

The Arts Mechanical

This is a post series on cybercrime. For more posts click here or the cybercrime tag below.

And a slow one. No real big stories popped up and frankly unless I actually try to pursue building an app, there isn’t much I can talk about. So here’s the week in ransomware.

I suspect that like many thing, cybercime has it’s fads that blowup and then die down.  Frankly if I were a cybercriminal I wouldn’t want something with the potential to blow up in my face like ransomware does.

Haddon Musings



I invite you to come and join me on this pilgrimage to change the world through thankfulness.  Perhaps if enough of us join together we can change the negative climate that exists and is overtaking our planet. Together we can move our fellow citizens of to a better, higher and finer place.

On Sunday I started to reflect upon my week and what I would write about for this column.  I had many things to be thankful for:  my good friend is starting real recuperation, I had an encounter with a call center that, although I didn’t get the desired result, ended with my feeling very thankful to the person on the other line for her efforts, and this week I encountered a family situation that could have been disastrous but everyone acted in good faith and the results of the encounter…

My Diary: Looking At The World With Odysseus Tinted Glasses

Gerald's Rather Strange Diary

June and I spent the night inside a giant wooden horse outside the gates of Troy‭ (‬although we both got up a couple of times to use the facilities in the city‭)‬.‭ ‬I had a breakfast of express train carriages and then took Poppy the dog to investigate the skeleton of childhood memories which I had hidden down the bottom of the road so long ago I had forgotten where.‭ ‬After this I met the ratman at the bewhiskered door and we walked and talked beside a silent stream‭ (‬with the crisp packet ghost of Rachel Carson in close attendance‭)‬.‭ ‬I came back just in time to go out with June‭; ‬we travelled in each other’s pockets and started one end of a Vienna Secession Frieze and then went studiously to the other‭ ‬-‭ ‬stopping off half way‭ (‬under the bespangled buttocks of a goldfish chimera‭) ‬to eat lunch.

Out On Their First Flight: Magical Bonding

Wide Awake But Dreaming

Part of last night’s festivities was watching The Neon Demon on Amazon.  That is one strange ass movie, but I think I’m gonna have to give it another viewing because it’s also interesting.  It’s certainly not a movie for everyone, but the damn thing is beautiful as hell.

It’s that sort of thing you need to step back and decompress from time to time.  I needed decompressing bad last night and watching a movie about beautiful young women was the ticket, even if it didn’t make a lot of goddamn sense.  Then again, this is why people watch Transformer movies:  don’t need to think or worry about the plot, just watch giant robots beat the shit out of everything.

You’ll find no giant robots here today, though you may find a beautiful girl–and let’s face it, most of the witches at Salem are beautiful and/or handsome.  And some have equally…
