    In a way all these ransonware intrusions are great! Teach a hard lesson that current software tech is coded very inaccurately to be depended on blindly with a scant few security program provisions and put those computer security firms to do real work and pay attention to their clients data safety. All i'm going to say about the matter.

    Blame game is a guilty cheap cop out for their lack of enthusiasm.
