It was preventable!
Alas poor Baltimore, I knew it well! (bit of a misquote.) And not true anyway - I’ve only been there a few times as a kid. But I might as well know it; their current malware problems could happen anywhere in the States or in the world.
City services are still dramatically affected weeks after the attack. Now they are asking for federal disaster relief funds to help them recover, which means that we might all be paying for it to some extent. The city has its own fair share of problems and - again - this was entirely preventable by proper backup/disaster recovery/business continuity procedures. Cheap insurance, folks.
