For Developers Enthusiastic About Experimenting This

I’m sure that it’s possible to get hold of it but if you do you’ll lose the data on any drives it can access, including other computers on the same network and network addressed storage drives.

If you want to experiment with it one of the safest ways to do it would be with any other computers and NAS drives unplugged, on a computer running Linux with a virtual machine running your guinea pig copy of Windows. You could even make backups of that version of Windows to replace the original once you’ve wrecked it so that the experiment can continue. It would also be vital not to allow the virtual machine network access to the host computer either, it running Linux wouldn’t make it so that the malware can’t encrypt its files, it just needs access to the drive to do that.
