Hi all friends.
I’ve only been on EndeavourOS for a short time and I haven’t had any problems finding all the apps that replace the apps I used on Windows. But still, there are at least 1 or 2 apps that are Windows/MacOS only that I would like to be able to use on EndeavourOS.
So, let’s give an example, let’s imagine for a moment that I like Photoshop (GIMP is better than Photoshop for me but, let’s imagine that I want to use Photoshop). Then I use Wine, or Lutris, or Bottles to run and install Photoshop on my EndeavourOS. But I am unlucky that the program has a virus, a trojan, or a ransomware that tries to encrypt Windows or something like that.
Can my EndeavourOS be infected by a virus from a program.exe that is for Windows, when executed through Wine/Lutris/Bottles?
I mean, I’m sure there are very strong viruses that affect Windows/MacOS/Linux, I think. But I don’t know if these viruses look for specific Windows files like “WindowsDefender.exe” or Windows DLL libraries, or perhaps they encrypt folders and even though I use EndeavorOS, perhaps the virus could affect the folders on my EndeavourOS because I think all the folders on All operating systems are the same, or something like that.
So is it possible, or do Wine/Lutris/Proton isolate Windows applications?
I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, but I’m really afraid of my EndeavourOS being infected.
Thanks in advance.
