Tech Tip Thursday - Ransomware Protection

The generally accepted recommendations for ransomware protection revolve around patching and backing up your computers, not opening suspicious emails, disabling macros and scripts from office products, etc. I was recently reminded of another technique specific to JavaScript attachments. Changing the default application for .JS files to notepad.exe will prevent code from executing without user intervention. It’s just another layer in the security onion/cake.

If you have a Tech Tip you want to share, send them to and we'll get them out next #TechTipTuesday.
