Hello Bleeping Computer folks- I'm creating this topic because another computer I work with has virus problems, and I'm concerned that if I log into this account on that computer to post logs that my password will be compromised. Is there a way around this?

What logs do you want to post?

You can always save your logs to a usb drive, transfer to a clean computer and then post them but depending on what type of log it is, will dictate where it needs to be posted. No DDS, HijackThis, ComboFix or similar logs should be posted in this forum.

There wouldn't be a risk of the log files or the usb drive transmitting a virus to the clean computer?

There is no risk from the log files but some types of malware will target unprotected usb drives.
