Ransomware is a special type of malware. Once it infected your computer, it encrypts all of your files and demands you pay a ransome if you want your files back. Be suspicious of any emails trying to trick you into opening infected attachments or click on malicious links, common sense is your best defense. In addition. backups are often the only way you can recover from ransomware.

Vmware ESX 5.5 cannot see Lun on HP P2000 Storage System

This post was originally published on this site

hi folks,

we have deployed vsphere 5.5 that includes 2 HP DL380G7 Servers and HP MSA P2000 Storage as our SAN. it worked fine for about 1 year but yesterday we had a power failure. there are 2 LUNs created and mapped to hosts. Lun 11 is accessible and working perfect. but hosts in cluster cannot see the LUN number 21. however if i try to directly connect to esx Servers using vmware vsphere client and add storage, i can see the storage and i can add it. the problems is why i cannot see Disk inside Vcenter. and why when i try to add it directly inside client (connected to ESX and not vmware Vcenter) it asks for format and wipe of all data. even inside Vcenter i can see Path and devices are working fine and can see the space and Partition format assigned to disk. there are some errors inside vmkernel which i add below.

What is Malware

This post was originally published on this site

Malware is software–a computer program–used to perform malicious actions. In fact, the term malware is a combination of the words malicious and software. Cyber criminals install malware on your computers or devices to gain control over them or gain access to what they contain. Once installed, these attackers can use malware to spy on your online activities, steal your passwords and files, or use your system to attack others.
