I have seen a few instances of ransom-ware locally. The more systems that you tie together, with more people using them, the more likely you are to fall to an attack. Some of the attacks on corporate systems are much more sophisticated than most will see. However, it does not take much time to ruin your day if your system is exploited.
From the comments in the article: "It turns out, security is really, really hard. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly hard it is. I mean, you may think it's hard to lock down your flat, but that's just peanuts to securing large corporate IT systems." --Ars Praefectus
