The Cloud Failed. "I came to bury it, not praise it." The solution to hacking and ransomware is - Virtualization and Hardware Based clustering.

The Cloud FAILED and is now an Obsolete Architecture.    You can quote me on that if you like:  Todd W. Byars,  July 1, 2021

All Clouds should be replaced immediately with a hardware based solutions and FULL Virtualization.   Modern, real time, incremental backups are recommended too.

How to Implement a Switch from Clouds to Hardware Clusters running full Virtualization:

  • Create Transition Plan to move from Clouds to Hardware Clusters.    VMware is our primary recommendation.  VMware in Command Line Interface, CLI, without all the GUI controls, gauges and services.
  • Select Micro-ITX or smaller motherboard computers that run cool or even fanlessly. Select Linux Load (preferred) or Windows Load or Other Load Procedure
  • Build Hardware, Setup and Test with Dummy Loads and Dummy Database.  After burn in and load testing run your pentesting and QA
  • Migrate Data to new Hardware Based Clustering.
  • Test, Run Live, Stress Test, PenTest and verify those backups.
  • Turn Clouds Off.

This problem is LARGE and GLOBAL.  So, The Computer Dudes, Inc and I, once again, GIVE you the procedure to use and share.   

It is for everyone, everywhere, including our competition who we consider as brothers and sisters in IT rather than competition.  So PLEASE SHARE!  

Who's your pal?  ;)  Todd

Here at Computer Dudes we believe everyone is in this together.    That it is good people and good corporations vs bad people and bad corporations.

We believe all Computer Techs, Architects, Engineers, Server Techs, Security Companies and even other Companies in any of these fields NOT to be our 
competition, but as our Brothers and Sisters. In that spirit, I give to your our current procedures for cleaning a home or office that has been hacked.

Read, Enjoy and PLEASE SHARE.   This is for computer users, phone users, techs and families too.   Print out a copy if you want.

Computer Dudes Standard House/Office Sweep with Data Capture and Reset of All Devices.

Procedure: 

  • Once a site or client has been hacked, enter the location and do a full scan of all Wi-Fi Signals, Sources, IP Numbers, Routers, Network and Devices.   (software Wireshark, Wi-Fi Analyzer App on Phone)
  • After data is recorded and your paperwork/report has been started, turn off all Routers, Devices, Phones, TVs and everything else that uses the network or Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Repeat Scans. Locate items and turn them OFF.
    Repeat Scans until everything is clear. Make your notes.
  • Setup laptop for Nmap capture. Reactivate client's Main Router. Capture for 30 minutes.
  • Look at your data for abnormalities, strange IPs, scripts, hack attempts and signals from any hacker attempting to reconnect to the hacked devices, their IP, location, time and ISP. Copy all reports and data and submit to law enforcement.
  • Factory reset EVERY device in the house. Then, do Firmware Upgrades and test. Have the client set much longer and stronger passwords and remind them to change those from time to time and NOT to share them.
  • File Report and/or Invoice.   Have your people contact the ISP where the hacker accessed and get them cut off.   Block all IP's from the hackers or even by region.
  • Train Client on Basic Safety.
  • Present Client with Final Reports and/or Invoices.
  • Clean and Reset Laptop You Used to Clean Network and Capture Data so it is ready for the next job. 

This is our Standard Operating Procedure for June 2021.

The Solar One Monolithic Super Computer now comes with 3 Monolith options for clients.

on 10 May 2021  Posted by Administrator  Category: Technology  Comments: 0
CDudes_JPG_Logo_for_Art_2020.jpg

The main Monolith is made of polished marble, around 6 feet tall, and about as wide as a man.  

On the Original - A second piece of Granite of the same size and width but of shorter length is attached to the Monolith in the ground.  Two pieces of thin steel separate the two pieces of stone.  Solar Panels go on one side, computer parts and video screen, mouse and KB, all weatherproof go on the other side of the monolith.  

The main Computer Core is either attached to the granite or is in a glass shell on top - because the computers and core are strangely beautiful.

We are now introducing the "T-Head" and "X-wing" Monoliths.   

These use the standard 6 foot Monolith - that goes in the ground, but use only granite for their form to connect the 2nd piece of granite.
They also allow for upgrades using larger Motherboards in our Gordo and Chico Clusters.

Follow me on LinkedIn:  Todd W. Byars  

There is video there of the Solar One Monolith which has been online since Jan 4, 2021 with no grid power or wired connections.
The main website for Newline Microservers is not up yet.   We have sold enough units to keep us busy for 3+ months.

It has been a rough 7 days. Starting Last Friday 2 Major Storms hit Tallahassee, Florida.
Most of the area was without power for a couple of days.
Today I completed my storm cleanup and delivered the last of the emergency supplies to those on my list.
Everyone is safe and recovery had begun.
Thanks to all who helped, get some rest and family time when you can.
Regards - Todd W. Byars

It does not really matter where you are in Florida or the SE United States you are subject to the weather and power / internet failure even with triple redundant systems.
I just lost a nice post for this website when went to post it and the Internet blinked. Then the power blinked. Now its raining.
In 15 minutes the sun will be out again. Crazy Summer Weather!
