How fast can a USB infection spread to a computer?
I decided to format my computer last night and before doing so, I did a quick format on my USB and pulled it out as fast as humanly possible (to possibly prevent writing by any virus.) I then proceeded with the format, and later plugged in my USB with AutoPlay still on. I formatted as fast as I could when I plugged it in again to make sure to prevent any write errors.
Is it possible that a virus could've still written to my computer? And I've done numerous
AVG avast! and MalwareBytes scans, all showing up with nothing. I just have this inane paranoia that I have a zero day virus.
