Virus from hell.

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
It's one of those viruses that pretends to be a fake anti-virus and your parents click block attack and get sucker punched.

Well, it closes everything I open, for example, task manager, command prompt, any application, etc.

Well I loaded up a USB drive with TDSSkiller and malwarebytes for now and I plugged it into the infected computer. Turns out that was a bad idea? Symptoms on the infected computer were no detection, I figured the virus blocked removable drives....

Well it appears the USB drive is now bricked. Is that even possible? It's not detected on any computer now.

Can a virus brick a USB drive simply by plugging it in?

No, that's a complete matter of coincidence.

EDIT: If you did a hard shutdown at any point, you have a low percent chance that you shorted out the USB drive (but still possible).

Unlikely, have you tried looking at the stick in drive manager? Does it even detect on the machine it was last working in?

This happened to my mom's laptop. In the end, I couldn't even boot into safe mode. Luckily it was a Vaio from 2003, and we just salvaged what we could into a usb, and then threw that laptop away.

My mom's laptop appears to have the same virus. When I boot into the OS normally it prompts me to buy some antivirus software in broken English. I was unable to launch anything, when I tried I got an error message saying the file was broken or something.

So I booted into Safe Mode and downloaded MSE and did a full scan. Nothing. I don't know what to do =S

No shut down or power up on either system.

I JUST bought this jump drive...

Nothing shows up in device manager.

time to reformat dude.. Only way to be sure. I advise all of my family that if they ever are prompted by antivirus other than what I have installed and trained them to use to not attempt to click anything but power it off and mail me their computer immediately.

So far two laptops have shown up since JAN 1st lol.

Defective drive. If you still have the receipt, return it. If not, contact the business and submit an RA.
