I had purchased on E-bay a 32 gb flash drive and immediately upon installing it, Panda detected 3 viruses and got rid of them. I was wondering how common that is to have viruses detected on a new flash drive? Maybe buyer should be aware anytime you get something from someone you don't know like through E-Bay.
When you got this flash drive, was it used or brand new as in unopened.
Hard to say. The description said it was new and came in a little sealed plastic bag, but that doesn't mean much. I emailed the seller and ask her whether it was actually new and about the viruses I found on it. Guess I wait to see what the seller has to say.
