A hacker stole $31M of Ether — how it happened, and what it means for Ethereum

I’m impressed that in this day and age, there’s some mind-boggling idealism out there.

In theory, whoever discovered this could’ve walked away with more money than any of them could probably make in many lifetimes.

Then again, this could’ve collapsed the whole ETH currency and network into oblivion…

Still, beyond insane and incredible.

[H]ardOCP: Big Ransomware Outbreak Today – Be Vigilant

While the outbreak was at first mainly located in Spain, it has quickly spread worldwide. It would be good for our System Admin readers to be very aware of this as it seems to be a very nasty strain of ransomware. Microsoft issued a patch for this on March 14th. In Twitter conversations, Telefonica employees and collaborators told Bleeping Computer that the company had sent several internal memos, telling employees to also disconnect from the company’s internal WiFi network. Additionally, the company blasted warnings throgh[sic] audio speakers inside their Madrid headquarters, warning employees to shut down their computers.
