Holiday security song #3: Ransomware

Sophos Home

In honor of the holidays, we’ve been sharing some light-hearted holiday songs with a serious security message each day this week.

First, it was a song about unprotected data flying “over the network and through the cloud.” Then we shared a song about our “least favorite things,” from exploit kits to macro malware.

In today’s conclusion of three days of holiday security songs, we see what happens when the joy of a sleigh ride is replaced by a night of malware cleanup.

Ransomware
To the tune of “Jingle Bells

Dashing through the day, with one hour more to go
Holidays ahead, but little did I know
My users were online, clicking all in sight
And thanks to one bad drive-by, I’ll be working through the night

Ransomware, ransomware, killed my holiday
Oh what pain it’s causing me, I might just have to pay
Ransomware, ransomware, ruined my whole day
Oh what pain it’s causing me, I might just have to pay

I know I should have patched, and tested backups twice
I never made the time, and now I’ve paid the price
I should have listened, too, when Sophos made its pitch
I wouldn’t be in this whole mess if I had made the switch

Ransomware, ransomware, killed my holiday
Oh what pain it’s causing me, I might just have to pay
Ransomware, ransomware, ruined my whole day
Oh what pain it’s causing me, I might just have to pay

Sophos Home for the holidays
