    Hello Everyone, I have recently read quite a few articles about the cryptolocker threat, but have not noticed anything having to do with Linux/Ubuntu systems. I use Ubuntu and do not subscribe to the notion among many Linux users that thier systems are "impervious" to malware. Are Linux systems vulnerable to cryptolocker infection as easily as Windows and if so, are there any Linux specific programs, scanners, removal utilities etc available that can be used as a defense against it. Also, has anyone heard or read any instances where a Linux system has been infected? Just Curious, and thank you for any responses. boot
