Re: Can someone explain.....

'Offline' is a moveable feast.

Backup is a copy . Where it is and how connected it is are very variable things.

I do auto backup. If my data were corrupted the backup would be, if I didn't notice for 24 hours.

But I am protecting against hardware failure, not malware.

If I were concerned about that, I would do a check on file/backup and if the difference were massive abort and notify.

I don't consider that this particular malware is a serious threat on Linux.
