Not playing Nice with Windows subsystem for linux


Recommended Posts

I updated my windows 10 laptop to the anniversary update and was eager to try the windows subsystem for linux and its bash goodness wich is ubuntu based.

After installing I went doing apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, and when performing the last one up pps a notification from anti-ransomware saying it detected ransomware activity by the dash process and then by the apt process and that they were quarantined.

I suppose that this is beacuse apt replaces binaries when updating.

Any best practices to follow?
