Can Viruses spread while transferring data Files via FTP protocol across a network ?
I have a backup server application running on a machine that is not shared and is not connected to the internet, all interaction from other machines with this Backup Server is via Sockets. Only this machine has a Mapping to the NAS drive.
My applications Client modules running on all Client Machines connect via FTP to the NAS drive for sending their data.
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 NAS drive ?
