Good to know, will make sure to avoid all Sagsmug Tizen products in future.
Rather stick with Android for now, until they sort out the fun and games in the Tizen code.

Every so often there's a great product in IT, whether it be a GUI from PARC, OS/2 from you-know-who, or a phone from somebody else. Or whatever.
Fumbling* the product badly will do it in, no matter how good or strong it is.
*Not recognizing an opportunity, departmental infighting, not listening to users, etc etc etc
Never had any snow or the such, but with the onset of winter our server room temperature monitor would spam us regularly with SMSes when the temperature dropped too low.
Adjusting the aircon helped a bit (a few degrees upwards) but only for a time.
Simply by adjusting the minimum level on the sensor did we manage to stop the SMS spam.
Interesting to note that it only started to bombard us with SMSes between 18:00 and 20:00 - other times of the day it was all peachy and happy and quiet.

then you can take all the tablets, laptops, battery banks and other paraphernalia you'll need overseas, relax for two weeks or so before disembarking. Hopefully nobody else will bring some biggenboombangstuff on the boat during your voyage as well...
Seems once you get the bitcoin message (apparently it shows the same message for all computers, and not individual bitcoin addresses) it seems to be more than a smokescreen, and you can save your skin by switching off your computer as it will start to encrypt your preciouses files once it reboots. Not 100% guaranteed as newer iterations may encrypt on the fly.
We've got a few incidents of this malware here in Sunny South Africa, and I'm trying to find out who's been hit.
