That Pulse Secure VPN you're using to protect your data? Better get it patched – or it's going to be ransomware time

Only if the ransom crew are script kiddies working from home, most likely it will lead to a daisy chain of other compromised systems in 3rd party countries that do not log their connections (because they're compromised!). If each chain is used only once for a short time then the trail will just stop dead unless you're capable of hacking through these systems quickly enough (breaking lots of laws on the way) to reach the source.
