I've been off social media for about 18 months (unless you count Reddit...). I've been playing with @bigben this evening and realised I quite missed Mastodon. 🙂

If it's more or less completely segregated from desktops and laptops it's very unlikely to get infected with anything.
This isn't possible in every case I'm sure but must be in most.
This worm attack shows how critical the tedious, boring janitorial sysadmin tasks really are.
Asset management: how many systems are infected that the admins didn't realize they had?
Patch management: this is not a zero-day. The patch is two months old.
Network segmentation: this worm spreads across flat networks. Segmented networks reduce harm.
Proper verified backups: if you backup and -V-E-R-I-F-Y- them, then the harm is greatly lessened.
@sysadmin1138 Are you completely unable to work? That is a bit ridiculous...
@Divan I'd say Linux Mint is still the way I'd go for that. Solus is still in early days.
@Divan I personally run "sudo eopkg upgrade" but I think there is a GUI for it somewhere. Check the notifications menu to say if there is stuff pending.
Made some serious progress with the raised veggie bed today. Just got to finish the side panels, do some reinforcement and paint it with wood preserver. https://mastodon.org.uk/media/uXWmiujtZ-4svKo9N8k

Working from home today because someone is coming to fix a problem with our heating. I hate almost everything about it, it's just too quiet and communicating with people is a pain! The home office dog is quite nice though... https://mastodon.org.uk/media/ToJuvQ0vAVhxNdVuYPA
