FILES IN MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE TURNED TO SHORTCUTS
« on: September 08, 2017, 02:08:49 PM »
Good day ladies and gentlemen. Can you guys help me to remove this malware in my external hard drive and possibly in my laptop? The problem is my files (external hard drive) turned to shortcuts and when I open its location, it says system32/cmd.exe. Thank you.



p.s I already encountered this situation and you guys already helped me (thank you bro Argus), but unfortunately my friend plugged it on an infected device and all went to sh*t.

You need to copy/paste the McShield log or it will not be readable.

Can read it using Android. Anyway it is very looooong,  goes back to 2015 and we don't need all that

I don't see malware traces in FRST logs you posted. Was that external drive plugged in only to your computer?

The external hard drive is connected. Here are the new logs (in case if you guys need it) and some of the corrupted files.

disk H, I and E are the infected

You didn't answer me previous question. Have you plugged in your external HDD to other computers? Also, I see you have two hard drives and the second also seems to have OS installed on it. If you have another Windows on it did you used it when your external HDD was infected?

It was an old hard drive from another laptop. But the laptop is not working anymore so I salvage what I can and turned its drive to an external drive. My external drive just got infected when my friend copied/used it on an infected computer. It has only been plugged into 'my' laptop and the other one.

Logs you posted doesn't show signs of infection. Please, right-click on external hard drive in File Explorer and click on Scan with MCShield.

MCShield is not a antivirus, and it ONLY target those malware types that try to jump disk
