One other thing... the realy key is keeping access to the backups under a second MFA layer of authentication. One dirve is good raw storage, but if they have access to your desktop, and it is mapped, or if MFA isn't turned on on onedrive... it isn't terribly secure.

A strong MFA non-SMS MFA will counter this problem 99%+ of the time.


Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the #PinePhone for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!

The customer must be appropriately assessed and the right subscription size applied to avoid this... in the case of an incident, theis would throw red flags, and we would not punish the customer...

also, offsite jobs are rate limited to slow down any sort of damage done in this fashion.

@erosdiscordia @nomad @estoricru @Steinar

Making this wayyy too complex... with a proper backup, just use an earlier restore point before the attack.

@nomad @erosdiscordia @estoricru @Steinar

Basically, yes...

You would just revert to a recovery point previous to the attempted DOS.

We also monitor for malware behavior and respond automatically to block replication of malicious files.

@erosdiscordia @nomad @estoricru @Steinar

It involves Our backup system we are building as a service offering. Bascially you can require MFA on access to the backups.

This would have likely stopped the attackers.

@erosdiscordia @nomad @estoricru @Steinar I can avoid this issue for them if they are interested. I have at least one way to secure these backups in the future, maybe more.

The world may end, but until it does I’m going to continue as if everything matters.
