    Yikes, this is giving me some pause on who I have as a webhost.

    Web host agrees to pay $1m after it’s hit by Linux-targeting ransomware
    I'm pretty sure that company is going to lose a lot of business after this.

    Depends on how much the encrypted data is worth...
    For a large company,one million is sometimes not that much money,when it comes to what it would cost to recover or just remake everything stored on the ransomed servers.
