Does Linux protect you against ransomware?

hello everyone, can Linux operating system be safe against ransomware ?

very good question @0xccd , actually linux is not safe from ransomware. Some example:

  1. Linux.Encoder - Wikipedia
  2. Windows malware KillDisk

The reason linux was less targeted the propotion of linux users are very less. But you can see the user base is increasing. In future, the attacks focused on linux users are going to increase.
