On the morning of September 7, a ransomware cryptovirus that originated in Russia struck the invaluable newspaper database FultonHistory.com, a site Gossips relies on extensively for historical research. It was a sad day. Miraculously, though, only a few days later, the site was up and running again. Earlier this week, the story of the attack and the recovery was told in the Times Union: "Grondahl: Russian hackers no match for digital archivist." Bravo, Tom Tryniski!
