NAS storage protection against ransomware

  fattyjib 11:21 27 May 2017


My client recently got infected with the Spora ransomware and it infected his PC and the file server so he had to pay to get his files back (please dont say "dont pay blah blah blah", he had to!), he has an external USB drive for backup but he hadnt done it for several months. Now I am thinking of fitting a NAS and doing a daily backup but I am concerned that if something similar happens again it will just infect the backup files on the NAS via the network like it did before. Is there a way I can implement an automatic daily backup that is resistant to these, or all, kinds of malware?

No - if its connected at the time of infection it will encrypt files on all networked drives.
