How long have computers been around?
In 1937 the first electronic digital computer was built by Dr. John V. Atanasoff and Clifford Berry. It was called the Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC). In 1943 an electronic computer name the Colossus was built for the military. Other developments continued until in 1946 the first general– purpose digital computer, the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) was built. It is said that this computer weighed 30 tons, and had 18,000 vacuum tubes which was used for processing. When this computer was turned on for the first time lights dim in sections of Philadelphia. Computers of this generation could only perform single task, and they had no operating system. (Source: Boston University)
Don’t fall victim...
Ransomware—its still out there, and getting more clever all the time. What can you do to protect yourself and your important data? First, keep all your software up to date. Out of date programs can be exploited and used as ways to attack your system. Next, and most importantly, don’t click on things. Nearly all ransomware is launched after clicking on a link to launch the infection. Never click anything you don’t recognize, and feel free to call a person to verify an attachment if you are not sure.
