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

Computer Dudes - Stand Down for 30 Days, Large Contract for Security Products Pending

Continue All Projects.   Continue all Contracts.  Check on your clients. Verify Backups.  

No new clients for 30 days as Enterprise Level - International Security Group considers security product purchase and production.

We will continue to post on our line of Monolithic Solar Supercomputers, which are Polymorphic.    The Computer Dudes, Inc are still on track to the worlds first outdoor
off grid Data Center made of Granite Monoliths, requiring no wired connections that is sensor platform or public information kiosk friendly.

The primary benefit of our Solar One Monolith system is No Data Center Cost, No Electric Bill, No Air Conditioners, no hurricane proof buildings, no
need for huge backup generators with thousands of gallons of fuel. #solaronemonolith on LinkedIn 

That and it is designed to last 100 year with spare parts which are modular and preprogrammed for each client.

The Computer Dudes offer our solution to the wave of Hacking and Ransomware hitting the United States and World

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.

Gordo-8 Core, Serial Number 004 completes 3D printing.

The core is on the bench now being built. It will be finished in less than 2 hours including programming and setup.
Modular Systems are the way to go! ;)T

Quote Request for Purchase and Placement, in a remote location, with the Satlink to Telcom option.

They want 10 of the new Gordo-12's now entering production. They may supply their own stone monoliths cut to our specs

Or we can ship them to the location then schedule our team for the setup and testing.

This this is a new client for our Private Client list. Enterprise Level, Global

Those of you with access to Geographic and Image Satellites -can you see
4 of 5 Monoliths in Place at our Site One Data Center?

The commercial satellites we have access to, due to contracts we have, show enough detail to tell what type of Granite or other Stone the Monoliths are made of.

Real time images and video will let you know what kind of Bird lands on which Monolith.

Dronecams are almost as good on professional drones that can be flow several hundred to several thousand feet above a site.

Address: 6555 Tom Roberts Road, Tallahassee, Florida, USA

Google maps are old they show no trees where Site One is now. Hi! ;)T

A modification of our #solaronemonolith allows for a Thermal Power System Option for power generation day and night.

This part is so secret we don't even write it down yet.

Thermal power generation is the next big thing, possibly even replacing Solar Panels because the thermal panels have a higher energy density and storage than standard or enhanced solar panels.

PS This advance happened because we learned something BIG on FAILURE in a different project.

Failure provides MORE DATA than success so maybe failure is not really a fail. Understand?? :)

The new #solaronemonolith a "T Head" Gordo 8 Class Six. We increased the cooling capacity of the PoE converters and gave them a better fan.

Basic System Configuration Price: $9,650

Thats less that $1,210 per server, with 10 years of No Power Bill for placement outside.

and it is Beautiful!! You choose the Granite!! With spare part sets it is designed to last 100+ years.

Its first come, first server, cash preference AND you will be required to purchase a 1 year service contract for each unit.

How many you want and whats the shipping address? - Todd W. Byars
