I am relatively new to OSX in general, I started using it two weeks only, the app Wineskin (a.k.a Wine in Linux environment) is used to run a Windows application inside osx by creating the correct environment, my question is: if a virus/malware isn't specifically designed to hit osx through wineskin, but only design to hit windows environment (but still sophisticated one), can it hit osx if I run it inside wineskin?
Wineskin I believe runs as a wrapper around the Windows written code, like an emulation. So you don't have Windows installed, meaning that the system structure doesn't actually exist on your OS X machine. A Windows virus will only effect Windows machines and cannot jump across as you are not running Windows, however you still need AV on OS X as they are targeted just as much. It's possible for someone to write something to exploit Wineskin to attack OS X, however this is the same for anything and would never happen as the specific information required for this is dynamic based on each machine/person/application.
