Infected USB

Post by shockz13 on 24th February 2010, 11:06 pm

Story: I had a USB a while ago and AVG kept coming up with autorun.inf being infected, i formatted, and scanned it numerous times and it kept coming up. I assumed it was a false positive so continued on as normal. Recently I did a school project, I used my USB to transfer some files, after using the USB at school my school computer account is acting up(which I will get them to fix) and now I am worried about my home computer security.

2 Things:
Need to make sure my home computer is safe
How do I clean/use my USB without it spreading the virus(If there is one)

Hello.
Well, lets remove any autorun before we do anything else, at least that way we disable it of regenerating itself.

Please plug in the USB in question.

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your Desktop and run it by double clicking the program's icon.

  1. Wait a couple of seconds for initial scan to finish.
  2. Connect all of your USB storage devices to the PC, one at a time, and keep each one connected at least for 10 seconds.
  3. If there are more USB storage devices to scan, please take a note about the order in which these were connected.
  4. After all the devices are scanned, right click in the Monitor tab, and choose "Save log". That will open the log in Notepad. Please copy and paste the log into this thread.
Explanation: USB storage devices are all the USB devices that get their own partition letter at connecting to the PC, e.g. flash drives (thumb/pen drives, USB sticks), external HDDs, MP3/MP4 players, digital cameras, memory cards (SD cards, Sony Memory Stick, MultiMedia Cards etc.), some mobile phones, some GPS navigation devices etc.

Looks good, C:\ and E:\ aren't infected.

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.

I'm really sorry about doing this but I just couldn't get it to fit, it woulda been like 5 posts. At the bottom of this page it is displayed in a notepad like text style so it's similar to the forum look.

Hello.

I see that you are running Limewire.
P2P(Peer to peer) applications are designed to help you easily share and distribute files between you and a group of people. But they can also be used to distribute malware, and thus are not considered safe.
The removal of these programs is optional, but highly recommended.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs.

    LimeWire PRO 5.4.6

Still having problems? the log looks good.

Maybe the USB wasn't infected but it's strange how my school account started acting up after I used it, w/e I'll just give it the benefit of the doubt, thanks for your help.

Maybe, maybe not.
Autorun infections are activated everytime you open a folder that contains an autorun file, like C:\ or D:\
