It will spread. If this is anything like the more advanced Cryptolocker, the one that sends the decryption key to a private server, then this is going to be nasty. The last one would encrypt all files on any HDD connected to the system be it SATA, USB or even network then encrypt the hash then send to decryption key to a private server. If you didn't have a recent backup, paying was the only way to get the key.

I haven't used an anti virus in many years. And I haven't had a virus in just as many. At some point in your life, you learn not to install software that's obviously a virus.

I removed the Windows PC version of this malware from my brother-in-law's computer lol... I had so much fun role-playing along with the threat as I removed it... scared him pretty good.
