HP accidently sent out a USB stick with a virus on it. Not good but, you know, things happen.
So what do they suggest to their customers?
To find out whether a drive is infected, HP recommends inserting it into a system with up-to-date antivirus software. Systems with up-to-date antivirus should be protected from the threat, according to HP.
Sweet Zombie Jesus!
So if you are protected, it will clean it. If not? meh! You needed to update your anti-virus anyway!
This was one response from the security folks:
Tony puts hand on hot burner
Tony: OUCH! That’s hot.. Hey Steve
Steve looks up at Tony
Tony: Come here, put your hand on this and tell me if this is hot
Steve puts hand on the same hot burner
Steve: OUCH! Yeah that’s hot.. Hey Carol!
Yeah, thats about right.
