When you're smart enough to code ransomware but stupid enough to think that schools have any money in their budgets to pay you...

As a Marylander, confusing Baltimore City with Baltimore County, as the article writer does, triggers me greatly.

Look twice when booking a "San Diego" hotel, which could be located 60 miles from "The City of San Diego" in San Diego County CA

And, yet, no flaying cars.

I need to take this timeline back to Walmart and exchanges for something better.

Tell me again how a world of only Uber eats drivers and their customers; Mad Max style isn't a good movie?

The way 2020 had been going I wouldn't give up the dream of flaying cars just yet.


I'm really hoping no one's been working on flaying cars, since given our 2020 run THAT'S the startup that's gonna fly.

The real question is, how MANY days, DAYS, it takes for one to crash into the sixth story of a buliding.


Hours.  Maybe minutes.

Nobody in Peculiar: wax_on: The city's government was the victim of a similar attack last year.

This says it all. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. You knew that your networks weren't secure or adequately backed up and you didn't do anything about it.

This attack was directed at the Baltimore COUNTY school system. The city and county are 2 different entities as was mentioned in the article and a couple of time here in the comments


What? You want me to read TFA???

This is Fark. We don't do that around here.

Two different locations and governments do not really fool me twice

Is that why Patapsco Avenue has been a car-destroying mess for years? They can't decide if it's Baltimore City or Baltimore County?

Just crossing it is killing my car's suspension.

I saw the notices all over today telling people not to log onto the system for any reason. Wonder how many people did.

I agree.

A few years ago there was some talk of merging the two together. Baltimore County sounded a big "Hell, no"
