Is this normal... I heard it is CryptoWall. Shouldn't any competent IT team be able to just roll back to a backup in less than a week?

Maybe they don't have a backup, and if that's the case, the IT team is fucked.

Looks like your uni will have to pay $10k to the Nigerian prince to get their data back,

Three possibilities:
A) backups are on a mounted drive of the infected system
result: fucked
B) backups are on tape/cold storage
result: longass time to implement backup
C) no backups
result: fucked

Biggest doesn't mean best. This doesn't happen at elite schools.

You should know that many universities hire internally from a pool of their own students to support their IT operations.

So, you generally have a bunch of CS/CE students managing day to day operations that don't know jack shit about networking, storage, or server administration.

I'm a consultant, so I have to clean up a lot of the messes these fucking idiots make.

Less than a week? Is a week literally 30 mins long?

"Elite" schools are glorified Jewish fraternities complete with safe spaces anymore, so I'll stay happy at my small STEM school thanks
