Re: Ransomware

It's not been much of a problem here.  We have one known case, and perhaps a handful of other suspected infections.  
When comparing those numbers to most other malware infections they are pretty low.  Both Forefront and Symantec appear 
to be catching at least some variants of the malware, and I think, for the most part, people are more suspicious of 
attachments than links.

Has this been a significant problem anywhere?

Is anyone taking any particular steps to inform and communicate the risks or prevalence of Ransomware to your campus?
Did you use this opportunity to caution them to be deligent in general or have provided them with specifics?  Thanks
