Monroe Posted December 11, 2016 Share Posted December 11, 2016 (edited) I've been wondering about this in relation to a computer having been attacked and shutdown with a ransomware attack. I have heard about two hospitals and a police department having to pay to get their systems working again. Let's just take a home personal computer that has been attacked and no longer able to fully start up. If that person has a DVD backup ... Ghost comes to mind or it could be any of the other programs that will store a backup to a disc or USB flashdrive. Would that type of backup get the computer started again? I can't find an exact answer to that question ... maybe there are various versions of ransomware that could be defeated that way ... maybe not. ...
