Has the prospect of this latest ransomware threat made you re-think Windows? WannaCry ransomware: Everything you need to know A couple of points to ponder 1. Ransomware has started making its way to OSX, so we are not immune, but thanks to the architecture its harder to get infected AFAIK. 2. If you keep your system update then your risks are reduced. 3. Practicing good computing habits, like not opening emails or attachments, not going to shady sights (*cough* warez, porn, etc, *cough*) I will be honest in that for my family, I'm wondering if the macOS ecosystem is a better fit. With kids they click on stuff that most adults wouldn't and while they don't use email the odds of them mistakenly (or not so mistakenly) going to sites that may infect a computer is relatively high I'm trying to fix my wife's HP right now, because her computer has some adware/malware. I'm not sure if its from the kids or her.
