  1. Well, I’m living with my locky .. everything I’ve ever written and stored.. poetry music lyrics personal messages stored..All very secure now with .locky Just have to forget about it n move on. Fortunately it does not gather music or vid files or emails within the email client. Yes it came in a .pdf email from a mobile device.
    Backup.. Yes six TB a bit costly to backup.

  2. You seem to be desperately pushing your products every time I open your newsletter. Are you going broke?

    • It’s important that people are aware of the ransomware epidemic. It is just as important for consumers to understand that there is a software that protects against this epidemic.

      • Fair point, Thayla. But have you noticed that every newsletter for some time has frantically boosted PitStop’s products?

        • David,
          I have. I appreciate your feedback, and I don’t want our newsletter to turn into an advertisement source, as that is not the purpose. We will work harder to limit the “BUY OUR PRODUCT!!” references! 🙂 Have a wonderful week, and we welcome any other feedback you may have.
          Thanks again,
          Kayla

  3. hmm, for some reason i can see the government taking control of the internet in the name of “national security” and “protecting its citizens” from this epidemic. they’re famous for that kind of nanny behaviour, only to use it in THEIR best interests.
