Today, my roommate used my PC without asking. Long story short, it's now infected with ransomware. The dissertation I've been working on for months is now encrypted, along with all the backups on my second hard drive. Now I have to pay the hackers $1,500 to get the decryption key. FML

  • Have your roommate pay the ransom, that is incredibly stupid. Hopefully you can find a way to track down those assholes.

  • That really sucks for you, but there is password protection for a reason. To keep unauthorized people especially family and room mates from using your computer without asking.
