Well now to the more intelligent bit.
Well in irony there rests also a lot of intelligence, but that put aside.
After dissecting and analyzing malcode for 8 years here, and observing the work of magna86 and the like,
I say that if that is/should be  true, why developers even bother(ed) to develop
a free product like Mx One AV ->  http://www.mxone.net/
or  MCshield 2   http://amf.mycity.rs/mcshield/
ClamWin      http://portableapps.com/apps/security/clamwin_portable
Panda USB Vaccine  http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/downloads/usbvaccine/

All these av solutions now found to be snake oil, what a waste of talent and ideas...

We have Gauss-Another, we have stuxnet and duqu and flame...we do not have online detection for all -> http://www.securelist.com/en/blog/724/Online_detection_of_Gauss

By the way where are the sticks that could easily be set to write.protect?

Maybe it time for Aventador to and let argus & magna86 do there job to help Archanaperth problem without hi-jacking this topic

This is a public/community forum. All are allowed to post. MC Shield is a great tool but it will not help Archanaperth in the future from malware attacking his USB stick when being inserted into another pc.

So polonus..............What your saying is that a company such as BitDefender, which has one of the highest detection rates around is merely throwing snake out at customers. Too funny. Prevention is where it starts. If we can provide Archanaperth with education on how to prevent his issue from happening gain we did our jobs. Telling him to install MC Shield and walk away is not enough.

It will protect his own PC from future attacks because MCS will check every USB that is hooked up.
As for other computers, if you have installed AV/AM/FW and MCShield (in this case) then, other PC will be safe too. This is the best form of protection.  I do not see where is the problem in that?


edit:
PS: MCS will also delete malware from USB mem-devices. USB will leave PC as clean and disinfected devices.

Hi SpeedyPC,

All are allowed to post in there own threads, but not to come swanning in on malware removal threads,
criticizing qualified standard removal procedures. It is at least frowned upon....

So what your saying then  is if Archanaperth goes to a friends house he needs to install MC Shield before inserting his USB stick?  ::)  Thats unrealistic. Archanaperth is better immunizing his current USB sticks and installing MC Shield.

Furthermore if anyone is inserting there USB stick into an unknown or malware infected pc that is there own fault.

Are we all forgetting that Avast has a USB scanner? Are we telling Avast users to use other means of scanning there USB drive cause you do not trust Avast? Why install another resident program taking up resources if you do not have to.

No, what I had to say, I said.

I recommend you to read it again my posts if you will, and if not well ... you won't be the first nor the last one that didn't want to accept and learn new things from someone who might be more experienced in this field.

I did not invent these things for shure. What is certain is that malware writers definitely love stubborn people.


Cheers,
magna

Hi SpeedyPC,

Well here is something that users could consider to have better security with- hardware write protect pendrives: http://www.fencepost.net/2010/03/usb-flash-drives-with-hardware-write-protection/
This is also handy software: http://rufus.akeo.ie/  to ensure viruses are not running in the back ground...

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 Scanner tab you click on "Always unhide items on flash drives"



  • 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.




Step2


Download DDS and save it to your Desktop from here:
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr

Double click dds to run the tool.

    * When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
        1. DDS.txt
        2. Attach.txt

Save both reports to your desktop. DDS.txt and Attach.txt attach back to topic.

Argus!!! Avast! Evangelist  ;D you are my hero!! I love you!!
I think I have my files back, but I did not understand if you want me to attach the logs to my post?
BTW, the device autorun is not working, I just got the files in a folder. Can I make the flash disk work normally?

Thank you sooooooo much (funny discussion, anyway  :P I got my chips and coke.....  ;))

Archanaperth wait until Argus or Magna86 confirm you're problem is 100% resolved before you do anything further to make sure you're in the clear safe zone first.

OK system is clean.

If you have installed MCShield, ability to infect PC's via USB devices is equal to zero.
 You could be assured that USB devices will automatically be cleaned from any kind of worms. Only worms (type of malware) may be transmitted using memory card.

Settings MCShield:
