Last few days were nightmare, as in my career spanning 30 years in stock market, I was faced with a grim situation, wherein my computer faced a
massive virus attack called "Ransomware" which encrypted all my server data/files and left me immobilised. The hacker left note on my computer
with a demand for non-negotiable ransom in the form of Bit Coin for undoing it and with a strict deadline running in hours. We were on the verge
of acceding to his illegal ransom and preparing ourselves for compromised data, when incidentally I came across Mr. Tanoy Bose, working with E&Y,
who casually mentioned that he would look at the issue before committing solution. He ran few initial tests on my computer and after few hours he
concluded that the encrypted data can be decrypted, as the hacker has used codes which could be cracked with certain procedures. He ran several
processes on my computer and by midnight all affected files were decrypted completely.
I strongly recommend Mr. Tanoy Bose, who is young aged 23, a definite computer whiz-kid and who has a very bright future in cyber security.
I wish him all the best for his career. His devotion for getting our cyber world free of virus is unparalleled and feel that he should be entrusted
with greater responsibility in his existing organisation.
