    Plugged in my flash drive to a friend's computer (had to give him a file), i was 99% sure a virus would first make way into it before any work is done, and surely this was the case :rolleyes:.. and it didn't even hide the autorun.inf file :p, just the exe.
    Scanned on virustotal and just 40% of all av detect the file.

    He had Avira premium installed. Btw MSE detects it (consistent with my own experience when i used to use Avira)... but yes i know cases vary from malware to malware..

    Its so hard to find a pc (outside my home) without a virus these days... just sucks...can't even remember the last time this did not happen.

    Nothing new...I have the sample if anyone wants to analyze it.:D

    i think you need to consider the performance of those av's upon execution of the virus in order to say that they are inefficient. Scanning is signature based and is rather useless.

    Use Panda USB Vaccine which disables autorun files on usb devices. :)
