Attacks where criminals hold kidnapped data for ransom are becoming more sophisticated. It’s only a matter of time before hackers have the upper hand.
In a typical ransomware attack, the criminal reaches into a compromised computer -victimized earlier by a worm or Trojan- and grabs a slew of files. He then encrypts those files, making them impossible for the owner to access them. Later, the attacker sends the victim an e-mail ransom demand for the encryption key that unlocks the frozen files.

Shanghai’s local government proposes a really convenient new service:
you can now pay your bills online!
Ok lad, you’re going to tell me: "What the hell I’m going to do with online payment as I can pay my bills in the numberless 24/24 convenient store?"
- some bills (such as telephone bills from China Tietong company) can only be paid in few convenient stores. So, you can avoid to go to these places.
- you know that if you don’t pay your bills before the date limit, you can’t pay it anymore in the convenient stores, but you’ve to go to the concerned company office to pay it overthere. In general, these offices are located in very far away remoted location (such as BaoShan). On this website, you can pay out-of-date bills!
- as -almost- everybody in China, you’ve a prepaid mobile phone subscription. It means that you have to go to some shop in the street, buy some prepaid card, call 13800138000, enter your telephone number and the PIN code of your voucher (and this process for each 100rmb card…). Now, it’s finished! You can recharge your mobile account directly by online payment! Easy and quick!!! Moreover, when you travel outside Shanghai, you can’t recharge your mobile account. At present, it’s possible thru Internet!
