Yesterday I connected my iomega external HDD to my laptop, and the following occurred:
I decided to sandbox it, and then I received this message:
The text in the second image may be difficult to read. It says:
Comodo then requested that I restart my computer so it could fix the problem. Following this I ran a full system scan, including a scan of the HDD, using Comodo. It found nothing. I downloaded TDSSkiller and it also said that my system is clean, however, it can only scan the boot drive.
I tried to run the IomegaEncryptionSetup again and I received the same warning. Comodo now lists the file as quarantined.
I'm not really sure what to do here; I have my PC set up so that practically everything is in either cloud storage or on my external HDD. I don't mind doing a complete reinstall on my laptop, but I'm worried about the external drive. There's about 500 GB of work data on there, with plenty of executables that may have been compromised.
Even if it's just the IomegaEncryptionSetup file that's infected (and I have no idea how that could have happened), then I won't be able to use the drive with another computer, or with my current computer after I reinstall windows on it.
What plan of attack should I be going with here?
