Trav’s List of Domains at Auction for Saturday September 5th, 2020

A family member called me earlier this week to ask if I had ever dealt with a ransomeware hack before. The small company they work for was hacked and all of their important information was encrypted and rendered useless unless they forked over Bitcoin to get the key to unlock everything. Of course, the tiny local IT company they use was backing everything up to a local network drive that was also encrypted so they really were screwed. The hacker group wanted $8,500 to hand over the key which would have been worth it but not knowing if they would really hand anything over after payment, they decided to wipe everything, restore from the last offsite backup (which was almost a year old) and have employees work lots of extra hours bringing everything back up to speed.

There are several things that were done poorly here, but the reminder is to do backups correctly, and this doesn’t just apply to businesses. It is super easy and super cheap to back up your system. One product I really like is Backblaze. If you aren’t backing up your machine, check it out. It’s $6 per month (or $60 per year) for an unlimited backup size with 30 days of version history and for a couple bucks more, you get unlimited version history. That is too cheap and easy to not take advantage of.

While I’m at it, I might as well mention I recently decided to move from my local spreadsheet holding a “different password for everything” solution over to 1password, and I have to say I love it. It is awesome to have the passwords centralized and available across all computers and devices. I keep finding new things I like about it such as using my phone to send login info to apps on the AppleTV with my face. It’s great. It is understandable if you have concerns about storing all your passwords in an online service, but read about their security before you write it off.

    1. Thanks for the comment Ken. I hope you find one or both to be useful. I also just noticed an important typo in the pricing that I have now corrected. I wrote $6 per year when I meant $6 per month for Backblaze. Doh!
