County Government Computer System Taken Over by Ransomware

From The Newark Advocate:
A computer virus discovered late Tuesday night caused Licking County government to shut down its computers and phone systems indefinitely to prevent the virus from spreading, protect data and preserve evidence. The FBI and Bureau of Criminal Investigation have been notified. 
The virus, accompanied by a financial demand, is labeled ransomware, which has hit several local governments in Ohio and was the subject of a warning from the state auditor last summer.

  2. Hackers’ community is highly active all around the world. Recently we have observed a number of reported cases where Gmail accounts were severely impacted by the unknown hackers and many of Gmail users compromised their valuable data. I am a network security engineer qualified from Payne Springs University and I think government should come up with an absolute solution to such mishaps.

Network and computer issue is very common in our society and most of the students have knowledge to this codding normal guys cannot understand this kind of code, but technical guy who belongs to this language or program one can easily get it. The Even college and institute has included a technical course in their course so that students have knowledge about it and some of them prefer to buy a degree online in their program who has knowledge about it and only need a graduate degree so that they can grow easily.
