After yet another ransomware attack, the pipeline that supplies nearly half of the East Coast's gasoline and jet fuel, remained shut down on Sunday.

Why is a website trying to open a file on my machine?

If clicking on a link causes a request to open a file on your machine, chances are the web page author made a simple, and common, mistake.

Recently I was on a web site, clicked on a link and it redirected me to a “file://” URL. The screen showed folders & clickable links to folders and files that aren’t on my machine at all! The question I want to ask is: is this website trying to access my personal files on my computer? Does a “file://” url mean my files somehow became public?

Nope. It’s something much more benign and banal

(Must Read: Many articles you should be aware of.  The petroleum pipeline shut down because of ransomware have some thinking people will start waking up.  Businesses and our Government body have mostly ignored Cybercrime.  Some pay the ransomware to hopefully get back up and running A.S.A.P., but that brings up issues.  For one, those paying out ransom are telling the criminal element that what they are doing is profitable and they increase their efforts.  Worse is much of what is stolen is our information we gave the companies or government and if they are paying the ransom, they are paying with our money and may raise price or taxes to make it up.  This is besides the issues we the public face without the products or services.  The criminals sell or use our information which can be used to make our individual lives worse and they know in some cases one or more of our online accounts, our user name, and password to take over our accounts sometimes locking us out.  Now if some are waking up to Cybercrime, guess who is going to pay for what it costs to fight the crime and upgrade to security that should have been an ongoing process going back at least a couple of decades.  If you think security issues don't affect you, just others, your being nieve.  The proof is any security updates and applications including AV are being updated constantly.  What you don't know, CAN hurry you!)
