LNK:FakeFolder-B [Trj]
« on: July 30, 2013, 08:56:28 AM »
Hallo Forum,

ich habe meinen USB-Stick ausgeliehen. Als ich ihn nun wieder an meinen Mac angeschlossen habe, waren einige der Dateien auf dem Stick mit der Endung .lnk (LNK) versehen und ich kann sie nicht mehr öffnen. Aus Angst, dass ich mir einen Virus eingefangen habe, habe ich mit avast eine vollständige Überprüfung durchgeführt und es wurde folgendes gefunden: LNK:FakeFolder-B [Trj]. Habe ich einen Virus??? Wenn ja, wie bekomme ich den weg?

Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe!!

I lend my USB stick to someone and now some of the files have the ending .lnk (LNK) and I cannot open them anymore. Avast says that it found the following: LNK:FakeFolder-B [Trj]. Do I have a virus??? If yes, how can I get rid of it? Thank you for your help!!!
Puetz

Download MCShield from one of the following links:

MyCity -  Official download link
Softpedija - Mirror download link

  • Double click MCShield-Setup to install the application.
  • Wait a few seconds to MCShield finish initial scan.
Recommendation to under General and Scanner tab you click on Defaults button to choose recommended options.
  • Connect your USB storage devices to the computer one at a time. Scanning will be done automatically.
When all scanning is done, you need to attach a logreport that has made MCShield.

Start -> All Programs -> MCShield -> Logs

Attach here -> AllScans.txt

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.

NP Argus. Unfortunately, he only mentioned it in the German part of his post.

Thank you for your answers!
I don't really mind whether I can open the files because I have them elsewhere as well. But I don't want to have a virus. So is this LNK:FakeFolder-B [Trj] malware, a virus???
Thank you for your help!!!

Probably yes, but I don't know if it would infect a Mac.

Sorry, most of us are on Windows. ;)
