I think the '/' (root directory) gets mapped to 'Z' drive in wine, that
way it is accessible.
I don't know the specific details about the permissions it has. But the Wine FAQs
themselves suggest that wine is not immune to malware or viruses
as mentioned here -> https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Is_Wine_malware-compatible.3F
And as far as I understand, if wine is run as user, it can acces user files and can alter
your personal files, which is what the malware targets.
