Network World - What would you do if a U.S. Federal government agency locked your PC until you paid a fine? While the PC may be locked and seemingly unusable, it’s not the Department of Justice or FBI that has done this to you. Quite the contrary, the lock was placed by malware distributed by a cyber criminal that the FBI would like to catch. In effect, your PC has been hijacked and held for ransom.
As forms of malware go, ransomware is not extremely common, but it is out there and making the rounds. Cyber criminals have found it to be a very effective means to make money. Scared or frustrated users are often willing to pay hundreds of dollars to avoid “the fine” or to free their PC again. It’s conservatively estimated that more than $5 million a year is being extorted from victims.
Colleges no longer have a monopoly on education, and programming is no exception. These 10 organizations can teach you to program just the way you like it: free or paid, online or offline, hands-on or hands-off. Rather than threaten you with a bad grade, they entice passionate students with the promise of a new skill, a new community, and maybe some cute badges.
Programming isn’t for everyone, sure. But if it is for you, you’ll find tons of resources to help along the way.
