Encrypted Time Machine Disk

So, my question is if I encrypt my time machine backup disk on the MAC today and I get a ransomware preload infection (which activates in say 7 days) will the ransomware still be on the backup disk just waiting for the 7 days to come up and install itself if I ever need to restore my backup? My assumption is that Bitdefender can not find a dormant ransomware infection, only one that is active. is this a probable situation?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
