Welcome to DBD. With 2021 drawn to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very safe and Happy New Year. The last year has been tough for us all, with both the COVID-19 and Ransomware pandemics doing their best to disrupt our way of life, but hopefully our aggressive and progressive fight against these will indeed keep us safe in the near future. Thank you for all your support. Stay safe. :)
