Can a virus behave like this?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday at work I accidentally downloaded a file that turned out to be a ransomware virus and locked access to several files (I formatted the computer). Later that day, I received an email from Microsoft that detected ransomware in my files in the One Drive cloud, apparently I was connected to the work computer on my Microsoft account. And indeed there were some files in the cloud damaged in the same condition as in the work computer. My question is can a virus go from computer to computer at home through the cloud and cause infections in computers at home and slow them down or does it not make sense?

Need to see what the settings of the cloud are. That is, after a local deletion of a particular file, how long the cloud retains the backup of the deleted file.

It is less likely that the virus knew how to log into the cloud account and start deleting the files from there.
