Microsoft says 'no known ransomware' runs on Windows 10 S — so we tried to hack it
We enlisted a leading security researcher to test if Microsoft's newest, locked down version of Windows 10 is protected against all "known" kinds of ransomware, as the company claims.

And that's when we asked Matthew Hickey, a security researcher and co-founder of cybersecurity firm Hacker House, a simple enough question: Will ransomware install on this operating system?
It took him a little over three hours to bust the operating system's various layers of security, but he got there.
"I'm honestly surprised it was this easy," he said in a call after his attack. "When I looked at the branding and the marketing for the new operating system, I thought they had further enhanced it. I would've wanted more restrictions on trying to run privileged processes instead of it being such a short process."

") For an ordinary human IT is the only social lift, as when IT lets you earn up to 3 000 USD cash monthly, other professions – barely $100 max.
2) There is nothing else you can do in your free time, besides drinking vodka, IT is the only way to connect with the outside world."
