To pay or not to pay - that's the ransomware question
Ransomware is becoming a huge problem nowadays, with new examples of ransomware circulating on a regular basis. There's already a great number of them out there: Cryptolocker, Torrentlocker, Prisonlocker, Cryptowall, CoinVault, TeslaCrypt, CTB-locker and so on and so forth.
There's a good reason why this type of malware is so popular among cybercriminals: it is a very profitable business with a clear action plan and direct monetization. Criminals simply infect a person's computer, block their files, contact them for ransom, and as long as the victim values their files, receive payment.

The Story Behind Papyrus, The Font Everyone Hates
In the hall of shame for fonts, we all know which one stands on top: Comic Sans. It is arguably by far the most reviled font out there. But if there is a font that falls in second place (and a close second, at that) it would be Papyrus. Those that don't know it by name will certainly remember its use in the James Cameron movie, Avatar, where a variation of the font was used on the posters, and the font itself was used in the captioned dialogue. Well, if you want to know more about the man who created the legendary typeface, we've got some info for you.
