Forgot to secure my mongo db instance, found half the data gone, and a new db holding me at ransom , learn_how_to_recover_your_data , good thing offline backups are a thing.

Recovered in no time, never will I ever repeat this mistake

    I remember one day at work the internet went out. Turns out the edge router was powered down, very strange. Booted it up and looked at the logs and found someone hammering on ssh from Russia. Turns out Aaron's password wasn't strong, and his name is first in dictionary attacks.

    Anywho I bet your heart raced like mine did that day!
