One of our clients was hit by the Locky (https://nakedsecurity.sophos.c...) strain of ransomware and had over 107,000 files scrambled and encrypted. 

Fortunately, since they've implemented a solid backup and recovery plan with us, we were able to get them up and running that afternoon without shelling out any bitcoins. 

Have you been affected by this rash of ransomware? If so, what version were you hit by, and what did you do? 

Be safe out there!
