USB drive virus? Do I have it? What should I do? Answered
So a time ago I got an worm on a laptop, when I looked up this worms spesifications on microsofts.com, it said that it automaticly copies itself to external drives connected with USB, through autorun. (I also got a couple of trojans etc). And I used an external harddrive, a memory card in a usb slot and an ipod 5g, before I discovered it. I freaked out of the viruses and reinstalled and formated the computer. Recently I have also scanned all three computers that could get infected, with MBAM and combofix (someone checked my logs) and all three computers were clean.
ps. MSE and MBAM didn't fing anything on the drives, when scanning through them.
-how can the worm not have spread itself to them? (is that even possbile?)
-lets say that I have that worm on a drive, will it spread itself if I turn off autorun, plug in the drive and drag one file at the time over to for example dropbox and then format the drives?
-can I be completely sure it isn't a virus there, the AV's didn't find anyting.....
If you have any better ways to check it or something like that please let me know. because I cant reformat and all that jazz with the ipod 5g.
ps. here (see pictures) is one way I tried to check if there was any viruses there, although I don't know if it works (?)
(the drives in the pictues are an external harddrive and an ipod 5g)
