Over the past few days I have been recovering from ransom ware at a clients.
The ransom ware managed to encrypt the host computer and the server shares both of them and
some misc shares throughout the network, I don’t condone many network shares so the problem wan’t
completely devastated. The Inventory system is written in VFP (My best language) about 30 tables were corrupted before I
killed the share on the server. Then I found the PeachTree server share had been corrupted also :<
2 register shares were corrupted 1 we lost the data all together.
as far as the servers are concerned ——- 100% RECOVERED thanks to persistent backups (multiple per day)
So, I have created a program that does nothing but monitor the inventory files, if any file becomes ‘NOT A TABLE’
the share will be shut down and data preserved except the table that triggered the problem.
