It still boggles my mind that all of these businesses rely on Microsoft.

I am suspicious of these ransomware attacks. Too many, too close together, and many companies that are ransomed normally DON'T publicize it because that leads to FUD about the company. These recent ones feel more like they are trying to fulfill a government agenda, and it's being run to make a point. Like 'you can't trust crypto, because the FBI can get it anytime they want to, so all you sheep should get out of crypto.' I see this as a prelude to their next move, possibly against crypto in regulatory way.

Anyone here ever having bought BTC recently?

Now imagine buying 11M to send.

Thats not something that just whoosh happens.

Is there an errant 11M worth available to transfer so regularly?

It was 23M the other day.

More from countless ransomwares reported..

Trust me you don't want them to shut crypto down or refuse to pay these ransoms. Their next step will just be the plain destruction of these networks to a state which will take weeks or months to restore if they are even even able to make it back. I'd much rather have these piss poor companies look like fools vs having our food supply / oil supply turned off permanently because that's the next step. Before crypto that's what hackers did to get a kick - they would delete your data or corrupt your back end severs. We do not want to go back to that.
