Re: Ransomware outbreak hits Norwegian ‘computers’

At least am air-gapped system only has an intermittent and narrow channel to the rest if it's managed properly. That should exclude plugging in USB drives that haven't been checked, let alone plugging in the thumb drive you found lying in the car park. It would help to use more than one operating system, even if it's just on one extra box that you use for relaying between the two worlds.
