Hello WG, 

 

With the current global virus "Ransomware" , should we be concerned that our pc could get infected thru the game and/or forums? 

 

Many Russians PC have been affected,  are WG  servers safely protected for us not to worry ?  

 

This is not sarcasm,  it's a real question ! !

This is why you should use Apple...lol

PCs are always more vulnerable to hacks cos PC share their code to be modified etc allowing people to find and exploit vulnerabilities in the PC software

Apple doesn't share their codes etc that's why Apple gets hacked much lesser than PC

Watching the news last night, it's said the ransomware was developed by the NSA, and the program is called "WannaCry". Lol the NSA are designing programs to hack PC so casually

While the FBI takes 2 years to unlock an iPhone belonging to a terrorist

Apple FTW :)

also maybe you should post this in Ask the Producer

Ransomware wasn't created by NSA, it's just an exploit in Microsoft which was kept secret by NSA. Microsoft did patch the exploit 3 months ago, but those who didn't update their version of Windows got affected. 

 

And well, Apple's OS isn't open source. That's an advantage in it's own way, lesser ways to get hacked. More optimization too.
