    I got a pen drive from a friend with the following viruses (check screenshot)...
    it was very disturbing to see all of these in one drive... what the hell would be happening on his pc? :rolleyes:
    And to top it all, he makes financial transactions from that same pc which infected the drive...and he is a person working for a software firm. :D

    Why on earth are people so ignorant, when completely free av like mse is so great these days??
    Its the no.1 reason why such malware manage to spread around the world so easily. I gave him a copy of mse but i don't think its gonna do any good for him now, if he does install it... Just plain sad.

    5 viruses is not a record. I have seen many more on a usb stick. but yes ppl should be more careful abt their pcs. there are 2 kinds of ppl. the carefree variety and the paranoid variety. its better to be the 2nd kind then the first

    I would not be surprised to see that many with all the recent malware on devices. First we had malware with battery charger then we had malware on the phones. If only everyone understood that it's a good idea to run an antivirus or even try to learn a HIPS.

    Yeah, except antivirus scanners are notoriously unreliable.
