Microsoft’s “Wanna Cry” Ransomware possible impact on Linux Users
It’s just come to light the $300 ransom you have to pay because a Microsoft Window’s Ransom-Ware has encrypted your data. What steps do Linux users need to protect from this if for example they are using wine?
Can we get specifics if for example it’s running VBA which LibreOffice is starting to support in beta?
On Russia Today they said it’s a tool based on NSA malware that Snowden and Assange have reported to us previously but this was not echoed on Al-Jazeera or CNBC Money website I visited.
Any and all answers that provide more information will be upvoted.
PS Coincidentally I used to charge $300 for data repair. Kind of spooky.
