This may be a stupid question but this forum is the Go To place for info on this stuff so I'm going to go ahead and make a fool of myself and ask anyway. From what can tell Ransomware appears to be primarily a Windows problem. My question(s) are does it affect Linux, BSD, or NAS systems directly as in running a stand alone Linux box, etc.? Also does it affect them indirectly by way of network shares? I imagine any NTFS or FAT file system would be vulnerable, but would like some clarification on this.
If this is the wrong forum to post this in I apologize. Also, I did do a search and didn't find anything useful so if the info has already been addressed in the past again I apologize. My search foo isn't what it once was.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'm here to learn.
