Hi, i have been blessed with a nice Little trojan on a android phone's memorycard

 

But now i have the card in my computer and no matter what i do i cant remove it or even format the Micro sd card.

 

Can you help me?

This is what Norton says.

 

I have tried many many programs and sd format Tools, but nothing. The card cant be cleaned or even written to.  Not even in Safe mode. etc.

You cannot remove the card or the malware? Sorry if that seems silly but,as the link states the card is compromised and dangerous, thus better to just replace it.

Functionality
This Trojan has primarily been designed to steal confidential information from the computers it compromises. It specifically targets system information, online credentials, and banking details, but can be customized through the toolkit to gather any sort of information. This is done by tailoring configuration files that are compiled into the Trojan installer by the attacker. These can later be updated to target other information, if the attacker so wishes.

That is what that malware does. If you want to clean it and accept the risk.. Then do this as special tools are required.
 
Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.


One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Well, that guide did'nt help me at all.

 

I now realize that this sd card is toast.  It cant be fixed, even tried booting with ubuntu DVD virtual, but the SD card cant be formated.

 

The trojan is in a winrar folder and is firm and stuck.

The guide is for you to post an FRST log. One of our analysts will review that and advise.
