Hello,

   I recently landed my first tech job as a hardware tech and sys admin. I know a little bit of BASH and am alright with CMD. I'm trying to get an idea for what other programming languages are out there that would be of use to me. Personally, I use Linux and enjoy cross-platform tools. I love scripting and automation and am becoming pretty familiar with the CISCO CLI but wanted to get community thoughts on languages specific to this focus. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

...We all know something...but we will NEVER know everything :grinner:

 

Cryptlocker "Process" remover...will NOT delete Cryptolocker, only the processes...( a "safety precaution" I took for those who still want to "try" paying the ransom to get their files back. DON'T FORGET TO MONITOR YOUR TIME LEFT BEFORE PAYMENT! )

 

("KillCrypt" will automaticly open %appdatadir%...just guide this to Cryptolocker-Virus and double-click on it. Remember...if you "restart" your system, the processes will be back...use this only for emergencies if you want to create a quick document. While this processes is killed, your docs wont get infected, but WILL be encrypted (unusable) when you restart the PC/Laptop OR clicking on the Virus again!!!)

Are you on windows only?  I use both AutioIt3 and AHK.  But they are strictly Windows.  For portability you may want to check out Perl and Python.  Also you can get bash shell and many Linux tools for Win32.
