6 steps to survive a ransomware attack
1. The server is sacred
My biggest mistake (well, one of them) was using the server as a computer. I’m over here trying to save money wherever I can. In my first year of practice I couldn’t justify another computer for myself in addition to the server.
Big, big mistake.
The server usually has the backup drive attached, and everything attached to the computer at the time of the attack, such as USB drives, will also be affected.
The server gets to live its life doing one job and one job only— being the server. No email, no Web browsing—nada. Don’t touch it.
