comment How to securely store SSN details in a database while maintaining searches?
Please read: serverfault.com/questions/162214/… .. i.e. "if located in the United States, you will likely be subject to state and federal laws by storing the social security number and I would suggest you treat it as PCI scope data."

comment Does sending credit card info over email violates PCI DSS?
Living in the US, I have NEVER had a company ask for credit card information over email - and I shop online frequently. Move to a different company now, and are you sure it is even a legitimate company?

comment Cryptolocker virus removal
Turn off the computer's internet NOW, and delete all of the cryptolocker .exes. One strain of the cryptolocker virus I worked with continued to encrypt files as long as the computer had internet access. It is even safer to just turn off the PC to remove the infection via a live USB/CD

comment Risk when attacker has only physical access to a computer's USB port
They could also just simple copy the hard drive - boot into a Linux CD/USB, copy the image to an external HDD, then pilfer what you need or want. This can also help you to figure out a better way to attack in the future (are there firewalls, AV program, network layout, etc.). Basically anything can be done if you have USB access
