Can Viruses spread while transferring Binary data with Winsock

Can Viruses spread while transferring Binary data via (TClientSocket/TServersocket) Winsock buffer stream across a network ?

I have a backup server application running on a machine that is not shared and is not connected to the internet.
My applications Client modules running on all machines connect via TClientSocket/TServersocket pair to the backup Server machine and transfer relevant data files. I am using Delphi on Windows.

Assuming that the data files are not yet infected but Client machine EXE's are infected with Ransomware Virus will the data be safe on the unshared backup server machine ?
