NAS Storage Credentials
I have a raspberry Pi 4 with a USB-Harddisk.
I have a Windows 10 PC with Acronis True Image 2016
On the raspberry I formatted the USB-Harddisk as ext4 and shared it with samba.
I want to backup my Windows PC to the samba share, so far nothing complicated and normal stuff.
But I have some details I would like to clarify because this backup is only and mainly to project my data against encryption malware that could hit my Windows 10 pc:
- The Raspberry will not be online all time, just for the backup-window
- The Samba user and password are not the same as the windows user. (this sucks but is important)
- The Samba share is never mounted by Windows (at least not manually by me)
These configurations, I hope, will prevent the malware from encrypting the TIBs in my samba-share, in the case that the raspberry is online for some case (let it be maintenance or just not having it shutdown after the last backup) during the event of the malware execution.
One last question I have is: where does ATI store the credentials for the NAS / Samba shares?
I believe that if ATI uses the windows key store, then malware should be able to retrieve these informations, but I didn't see it there. How and where does ATI store those crendentials? I hope they are stored encrypted and not lying around in somewhere in clear-text.
Thanks for you help
