Did you eventually notice that all your data on any of your USB Drives is Vanished and only you could see is a Shortcut in name, same as your Pendrive name.
DO NOT PANIC ! It is a ‘USB Shortcut Worm Virus‘. Your data is safe. The only thing is you cannot access it directly.
For this you dont require Antivirus Support at this moment. The only thing you need to do is :
Open CMD as an Administrator.
COPY + PASTE this code in your CMD –
attrib -h -r -s p:\*.* /s /d
NOTE: To replace ‘p’ with your Drive letter.
Allow it to process depending upon the size of your USB Drive and observe that you have got some folders visible in your Drive. Browse the folders and you could see your data recovered back.
What I have noticed is the worm is so classified as ” trojan horse generic32.tnu “.
BEWARE! This Worm is still hidden somewhere in your System and ready to attack other USB Drive. Now you could only do is Update your Antivirus Program, and quarantine the worm. Some Antivirus Programs dont detect, cant help it.
If the above procedure didn’t helped you, and you still want to recover your data back. Download freeware name ” RECUVA “. Run a Deep Scan on your drive and recover your data.
