And there you already find everything you need to know. It’s a old vulnerability (hence “Legacy”) that affects IE 6-10, so Windows only.
As for WINE: I don’t know what exactly they used but I’m very confident it’s not based on code from 2012
If you wanna know even more you can then try to find the file on your system, upload to virustotal or something similar.
But never panic! Always keep in mind that it’s very unlikely to get malware on Linux overall. And if you use common sense and some precautions (for example: a DNS which blocks ads, trackers and sites known to have malware, is very useful!) and don’t open attachments on emails from african princes, you’re probably 99% safe.
On Linux since 2000 till now I remember I once installed an AV just out of curiosity. I strongly believe it is no such thing is needed for any Linux. I just installed it as a result of the discussion at the other thread in my 1st post.
I just uninstalled clamav by the way
Same here. Visiting this wonderful forum daily, at least once a day to be updated and learn more perhaps. I won’t post as well unless I really have a serious problem or I have something to contribute I hope would be of value.
I guess that’s correct! Almost nobody puts a virus for Linux “in the wild”. Not worth the effort. And there’s also the fragmentation. A virus that works on a server running Red Hat or a PC running Debian won’t necessarly work on a laptop running Arch.
Ofc that doesn’t mean that Linux is more secure than other OSes overall.
But as far as I know, any virus or malware cannot really affect a Linux system unless it gets the Admin (root) password! It can only affect user data (though to get installed it still needs root password).
In my almost quarter of a century on Linux never really had a virus or any malware that does (or did) anything. Even this what I found recently which appears to be a false positive, did nothing.
