Now we’re sucking diesel ….. do you know what next to expect?
And the answer to that is? …… Not even GOD knows although some will imagine she does and everything is under Universal Command and COSMIC* Control.
These aren’t just digital troublemakers, they are a highly organised group of cyber soldiers aiming to wield frightening power on a global scale …… The Lazarus Heist … a BBC production.
Is that Uncle Sam taking its lead from the Lazarus Group and North Korea and going all renegade rogue and pirate handsome? Methinks that opens up flood gates to storms of biblical proportions which are going to drown out and destroy systems and systems administration one never ever before even thought to imagine possible.
The only problem with any such ploy and play like aiming to wield frightening power on a global scale is that whenever you miss the bullseye gold sweet G Spot, the arrow/ordnance has a default tendency to boomerang/bounce back to score a direct hit right through one’s own head and decimate one’s own headquarters.
It’s a classic Fool’s Mate move ……. and gravely to be regarded, and best always avoided like the plague.

We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States …… Ex US President Barack Obama
Please note though that is not the same as …. We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship from here in the United States ….. which is where we is apparently now admittedly at, for that is what y’all certainly have.

You just can’t get quality staff nowadays so be prepared for second best helpings
He was elected with more than 60 per cent of the vote after his serious rivals, who were moderate candidates, were banned from standing, leaving him to defeat Hassan Rouhani, the incumbent president. Overall voter turnout was just under 50 per cent.
A rigged 30% population vote against no viable opposition or competition is not that impressive. Indeed, it is surely very depressing and quite indicative of a serious loss of commanding control which is bound to be future problematical.
How can that be of great help to any Supreme Leader?

Re: Pravda? @martinusher [a gen-u-ine American Taxpayer]
My concern as a gen-u-ine American Taxpayer is that we’re paying armies of bureaucrats to find and seize others’ domain names using a pretty flimsy pretext (“didn’t register / failed to use Form 27B/6 (or was it Form 37/B6?”). Considering that many of our cities are suffering from excessive gun violence at the moment (that’s excessive even by our standards) you have to wonder whether we’ve either got our priorities seriously warped or we’re just plain incompetent and can only manage the low hanging fruit. …… martinusher
Some would lament and advise that it is a lot worse than you suggest or imagine, martinusher, with the honest plain text truth being at least …… we’ve got our priorities seriously warped and we’re just plain incompetent and can only manage the low hanging fruit
And that leaves one wide open to being seriously disadvantaged in all manner and flavour of attack and assault/exploit and engagement.
However, all is not irredeemably lost, for one immediately available option to address the intelligence deficit and proprietary intellectual property debt in-house, is to buy it in from A.N.Others abroad in order to remotely provide that which is virtually required and practically missing. IT aint explosive rocket science, pure common sense, although it certainly can be both earth-shattering and mind-blowing. And aint that the gospel?

Oh? …. I don’t think so
Other than perhaps security researchers who might have it to try and create defences against it, there is no other reason to purchase ransomware other than for using for criminal activity.…. mark l 2
For use against criminal activity immediately springs to mind, mark l 2. Such wares are a double edged sword/dual/multi-purpose use tool and as such highly prized and respected in many circles/round tables/oval offices.
And some highly prized and respected circles/round tables/oval offices are certifiably criminal at their core and roots
