My friend is a 30 year old male that is not a techie guy, he don't know too much about computers, I borrowed his USB device so I can copy a file that I really need which I accidentally heard that he has one copy of it.

I plugged it in my laptop and voila!! 4 Stuxnet trojan + 1 worm was detected. For you who don't know what stuxnet is, please check this out:

It's not a typical virus / backdoor based on news and articles that i read. I know that it doesn't really affect home computers (only the facility it wants to target). But i'm very shocked i got this detection and instantly brought to quarantine by my good and reliable antivirus (Panda Security - Premium). Malwarebytes didn't detected it, but i guess panda acted first that's why.

Do i need to scan my PC? What's your suggestion guys? It's somewhat scary to receive such detections specially like this one.

Panda security is known for false positives and I doubt that your normal non-techie friend is under the radar of the Isreali government but he may be hidding stuff from you who knows :P

Anyway,just scan your pc and you'll be fine.

Yea you're right about panda, they're just too cautious about dangerous files (infact they are in the top 5 best antivirus).

Anyways, thanks for confirming i need to scan my laptop. :) Maybe malwarebytes can do that stuff for me!
