I have 400 servers to make sure they're updated tonight. I'm not even a quarter of the way through. We have most of this automated but I'm not taking any chances and I'm manually checking every one of them.
We haven't had a single customer get hit with this yet, and it's not going to happen on my watch, either.
It's going to be a LONG night!
I do have successful backups of everything, thank God. So just in case, I am covered.
May 15, 17, 11:25 PM #19I have a vendor that doesn't want me to update their servers. I'm not sure what to do about those. Makes me very nervous.
May 16, 17, 06:33 AM #20Is this only affecting businesses and/or Microsoft users?
May 16, 17, 07:06 AM #21Reports out that they now believe this hacking attack originated in North Korea.

I have Norton Security on my computers and they sent out a message saying "don't worry, you are coverered". I'm good.

The last one is still driving me nuts. It's dual boot jobby (Win 7 and XP) that my last assistant set up. Wish I'd never let him do that.

It's the accounting manager's workstation, too. So downtime is critical and there is software she's loaded without telling me that is mission critical and we have no installation media for it and no way to get it. The XP machine has vendor proprietary software that will only run on XP and we do not have the installation media for that either.
