Matthew Olevano Lesson 2 Homework COSC1301-TD010 The topic I chose to do my analysis on concerning organizational issues related to Internet technologies and network security is a new and emerging threat to companies called ransomware. On 23 January, 2017, the Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/jan/23/ransomware-attack-paralyses-st-louis-libraries-as-hackers-demand-bitcoins?CMP=twt_books_b-gdnbooks) published an article that over 700 computers in St Louis had been infected with ransomware, and that the city was deciding how to deal with this threat.
In the article, Virus killing Ontario lambs has troubling echoes of Zika, written by Jennifer Yang for The Star, we learn that there is an outbreak of Cache-Valley virus in Canada. The Cache-Valley virus has existed in Canada for a long period of time but new evidence shows that the virus could evolve into something similar to the Zika virus and effect humans too.
Viruses, Plagues, and History, written by Michael Oldstone, is an insightful and highly educational book that details the history of, that’s right, viruses and plagues. Through typically dry, yet engaging prose, Oldstone recounts what seems like all of it while simultaneously bringing to light the contributions of those brave scientists
Yes. I believe the author is so trying to portray that this new disease now called “Zica” is starting to become a problem along with the already worries of ISIS. Like we already don’t have enough to worry about, now here comes this new issue. To me, the fact that they already have a name for this if this was supposedly to be a “New” virus, tells me this is probably just another propaganda tactic used to deflect citizen’s attention off the real problem and let them come on in with a sneak attack. Crazy.
Coltivirus Coltivirus, belonging to the Reovirus family is a genome of viruses that infect plants, vertebrates, and even invertebrates. . This virus is one of the causing agents of Colorado tick fever in North America, which has been isolated from patients with encephalitis, flulike syndromes, meningitis, and other severe complications. The main vector for the Coltivirus in North America is the Rocky Mountain Wood Tick, although the virus has also been isolated from mosquitoes, rodents, and humans. Coltivirus is a RNA virus, which means it has a ribonucleic acid genome. It exhibits a high frequency of RNA segment reassortment in its tick vector. Rodents and deer are its typical reservoir host, but other hosts have been reported.
In New York there are an ordinary family who without asking becomes the subject of a pandemic devastating Mitch, Beth, Jory Mitch's teenage daughter and Clark Beth's son . Beth as she is returning home from a business trip to Hong Kong, where without knowing was infected by the MEV-1 virus. She transmits the virus to people who were close to her (including an ex-lover she meets during an halt in Chicago). Once home, her health declines suddenly. Four days after she contracts the virus, Beth has seizures, froths at the mouth, and dies. Before she dies she infecting her young son Clark, who spreads the virus at his elementary school. During Beth's autopsy (just six days after she was infected) a pathologist observes highly suspicious
I recently watched a video that was very effective and was released on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website about the zeka virus specifically for audience analysis to answer any questions or concerns the public might want to know. The zeka virus is spread through the bite of the Aedes species of mosquito mostly found in Brazil but is slowly spreading towards the United States in a chronological pattern. The problem-solution pattern for the problem is that one in five people become ill from the virus and get symptoms like the flu (fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes) for a week then get better, but the virus stays in the body. The main people this virus effects are pregnant women because the virus causes a birth defect called
Parvovirus B19 is a virus that commonly infects humans. The mode of transmission is through droplet infection. The infection also can be spread through contact, as well as transmitted from a woman to her fetus. The most common illness caused by B19 is the fifth disease, which is a mild, rash illness occurred mostly in children. About 20 percent of children with this disease has no symptoms. But, in others, early in the infection there may be cold like symptoms. Two to five days later the child typically develops a slapped cheek rash on the face and a lacy red rash on the trunk and limbs. The child may not feel very sick even though the rash is itchy. The rash disappears after seven to ten days, but it can come and go for several weeks, especially
Lingering around us are viruses that are anticipating for the moment they get to enter and attack their next host. To this day there are about 7,500 rats roaming the streets of Chicago. Rats carry diseases due to the high level of poor sanitation and large existence of garbage on the streets of residential areas. Living in one of the most disgusting creatures, it manages to make its way into the human. This new, horrific virus is known by the name of Bunya-Hantaviridae Mortifero. It gets its name from the species and family that it comes from as well as its structure. The virus’s first host cell was the Norway rat, also known as the street rat. It is well known that rats carry diseases, but this particular virus came along when Hurricane
Viruses are usually known for sickness, or wreak havoc on your computer. Yet, scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a way to generate power using harmless viruses that convert mechanical energy into electricity.

Cytomegalovirus: Ubiquitous and Underdiagnosed The cytomegalovirus is in the herpesviridae family of over one hundred known herpes viruses. In this family, only eight infect humans. Of these eight, the further classification into three subfamilies stems from what type of tissue that the virus invades, infects, and that symptoms display. The cytomegalovirus is considered to be in the second subfamily, attacking the immune system on a cellular level (Fagerberg, Smith, & Grimes, 2013). This virus doesn’t end its work there, however. It will attack muscle tissue and neuronal cells. It is associated with hearing and vision loss in infants and children who were congenitally infected. This complication may not arise for years and may not be
Zeus malware What is zeus malware Zeus malware also known as zbot is a type of notorious banking malware. A computer virus that targets windows operating system with the primary aim of stealing financial data and confidential informations from banking and financial institutions. It was first found in 2017 when it was used to steal data from the United States Department of Transportation (USDT). It became more popular in 2009 when a security company Prevx found that Zeus had taken over and infected 75,000 FTP accounts on websites of companies like Bank of America (BOA), BusinessWeek, NASA, Oracle, Cisco, Amazon, etc. It is also used in social engineering scams of tech support technicians. They also use it in make believe scams too, into making
Luke, I agree with your thread, if you don’t turn off you computer you cannot guaranteed your computer protection while its turned off. One of the most recent malicious virus’ is “ransomware” virus, it prevents or limits them from access to their computers. End users are a point of vulnerability to any corporation, especially when it comes to emails or surfing the web. Just this week, at work we had several end users received emails with the word “invoice” in the subject area. Two of the folks usually deal with receiving invoice payments on a regular bases, one just so happen to be the director of accounting. We told them to immediately turn off their computer; after retrieving the computers and booting them up off our network, we noticed the
Just like a biological virus, a computer virus is able to infect and ruin lives. This malicious software constitutes more than just simple viruses but also includes other types of software including worms, Trojan horses, and ransomware. Malware has been around since the late 1980’s. Originally, people became hackers
