Maybe you are already aware of this since it's from 5 days ago, but for those who are not, beware:

Statement from QNAP themselves:

This new broke in our office las Friday. Luckily we have a Fortigate NGFW and our NAS is always up to date, but one fellow at the IT department was not so lucky with his home QNAP and lost a lot of files, although none of them were critical for him.

Getting my first qnap nas in a few days, so this is of interest. Thanks for pointing it out.

Quick read seems like if nas is exposed to internet is how it gets affected, is that correct assumption?

As far as I can tell, yes.
The QNAP at our office is behind a good NGFW and updated, while the co-worker's wasn't.
Download the Malware Remover app before transfer any data and you shouldn't have any problem.
