Reliability of USB VirusScan

I am subscribe users of USB VirusScan with my 32G Scandisk and
using Symantec on my desktop.Smiley Happy

Yesterday my Symantec alert me that my USB flash was infected
with W32.SillyFDC and W32.Paqipef.I.html.:mad:

I sucessfully remove all my infected virus from my flash using SAV
scan. I am now really concern whether USB VirusScan can really protect
my data.:confused:

RE: Reliability of USB VirusScan

It may or may not have been a genuine infection. Rather than have Norton delete it it may have been a good idea to submit it, either to them for further testing, and most definitely to McAfee Threat Center.


Send a file to Avert for analysis:
Email file to: [EMAIL=""]
When submitting samples via E-mail all samples must be packaged in a .ZIP file. When creating this .ZIP file, it is important to understand that the .ZIP can be no more than 3 megabytes in size and can contain no more than 30 files. Additionally, any .ZIP file created must be password-protected using the password "infected" (minus the ""). Failure to follow these guidelines will cause your submission to be rejected.

No anti-virus on the market is proof against everything out there so it's always best to have some extra anti-spyware applications installed just in case.
