San Francisco Radio Station KQED Streaming Silenced By Ransomware

A public radio station in San Fran had streaming and email taken offline by ransomware last Thursday, June 15th. They had to set up a temporary email account to deal with live questions during the “Forum” radio show. Only the streaming and email was taken down, but in this day and age, that can be a significant percentage of listeners.
