Thanks Jeremy.

I think that it is possible that an infected SAMBA client ( a windows
machine ) might be able to encrypt the files on the server and
affect the files.
Is there any way to prevent this from happening ?
Therefore the samba clients will need to patch their windows client and
disable SMB1.
