My goal is to protect my Veeam backup destination on my NAS from Cryptolocker while using Veeam Endpoint Backup in the normal way. I want the connection to the share to be available only to Veeam.
I have created a share on my Linux NAS called "\\NAS\Veeam" and set a strong password and I am using this as my backup destination.
Testing shows that running a backup job does NOT give access to the share \\NAS\Veeam in Windows Explorer and in fact Windows Explorer asks for a password. "NET USE" at the command prompt does not show a connection. This looks hopeful.
I don't know enough about Veeam or Cryptolocker or Windows security.
* Is the password stored in plain text? * how does Veeam connect to the backup repository? * Does the Windows security implementation mean that his connection is not available to other processes (such as Cryptolocker)?
