The radio station Donau3 FM has a location advantage against hacker attacks. On Wednesday afternoon, the screens flickered there and a text window opened: a ransom demand – money in exchange for access to your own computer systems. Someone has broken into it, and because radio production today works entirely through software, the editorial team is, so to speak, locked out of their own digital studio. But: Donau3 FM broadcasts from Ulm, the deepest part of Swabia. You don’t throw away a decades-old analogue mixing console as long as it still works.
