    Hey just a heads up, some clowns have started trying to "ransom-lock" Windows servers. I noticed this cute little .txt file on one of my RDP's today.

    I've been trolling their email addresses just for lulz. Luckily I don't have anything important on the ones they did hit but I wanted to give everyone a heads up so you could do a backup or take w/e steps necessary as soon as possible so if you do get hit you can just restore to it.
