There is always a way!

"This ransomware attempts to encrypt all files with the following file name extensions in all folders in all fixed drives, except for C:\Windows:

.3ds .7z .accdb .ai [...]"

New ransomware, old techniques: Petya adds worm capabilities

Ось бачите, як все просто. Тому, хто зберігає нажиту тяжкою працею data у c:\Windows\VasyaTehHakir, російського malware можна не боятися, ггг.

When if your lovely Mac suddenly dies you may start using some ancient, generally good though unsafe (that literally means No Internet, No USB, No Networking) Windows, or modern ugly spy-Windows, or more ugly modern Linux with stupid systemd inside. Or, better, go to buy a New Shining Mac but have no money for a moment, ah? Sadly, my case.

Personally, I have already 5 windows machines (with kinds of 98, XP and Vista) now, though I would prefer Mac or something Unix-like. But it must be say that my Windows usually sits at home, like a cat, behind the router and firewall and do not walk to watch warez and porno sites or something else. :) Linux, for a moment, only as Live CDs for some light administration use or so, for example: I am copying overwhelmingly slow-in-motion TB of backup from HPS+ HDD to NTFS one, right now.
