Afaik it doesn't run in an emulator but more like wine. But I still do
not get why that would expose Linux itself to a greater thread? That's
still a Windows-machine getting infected. You mean like a virus, worm
whatever would be injected into the binaries and then break into
Linux-systems and infect them…like in the movies? oO
So will Fedora be removing WINE too? Because that allows win32 code
run on Linux...
Hm wine…I wonder what ransomware executed with wine would do…
