Another wave. I'm hearing of quite a few large firms that have been affected here in the UK.

Of course it would help if companies didn't do things like pay nearly $1m dollars in ransomware demands.

I wonder what's and who's behind these attacks? It's like someone is preparing for large-scale cyber war. Doesn't help that some Intel's Skylake and Kaby Lake chips have been compromised recently which would allow for data corruption/deletion. Coincidence?

Its both things, id say

I havent heard in life of anyone getting inffected in Android Systems (linux system), and there hundred of millons of users using Android, and installing thousands of differents apps in that system. I go to google news, and you cant find anything about security infecctions in android.

I always said linux is inmune to virus and malware, and for what i've seen the last five years, this is like that in real life.

I wouldn't be so sure... there are linux malware, there is even a wikipedia page which attempts to list them all. also:
