Have you been hit by Ransomware?

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!

Interesting, can you provide more info on this scenario? Been seeing a lot of this kind of thing lately...

Would be nice if there was an "easy button" to recover from ransomware after the fact... guess the best equivalent of that is to maintain good backups.
