The first ransomware in1989 was used against the healthcare industries around the world and was named the Aids trojan. In the mid 2010's they were warned that their outdated windows xp could be targeted again as another ransomware was being detected by the anti virus companies. The warnings were mostly missed and in 2017 the WanaCry virus infected thousands of computers in 150 countries and cost the industry millions. Roll back to the late 1990's and the papers were full of end of the world theories and the y2k bug that would cripple the world computers when their clocks advanced to 00. That never happened of course but while everyone was celebrating the new millennium they didn't notice the I love You virus popping up as a message on millions of computers. Anyone who opened the attachment within the message had their computer pwned 'owned' by the hackers who now had access to all the sensitive files. Around the same time another bug would appear around town in the form of the G Wiz electric car. No doubt the purchasers were promised that they were saving the planet and now had unlimited access to the bus lanes and would live forever. The latest conspiracy theory making the rounds is that covid 19 is manmade and triggered by the new 5g system. That is unlikely to be true. Is it?
