    The infection can spread to the Removable Storage: USB, Flash, etc. The nature of these infections is classic. Most common are AdobeR.exe, Ravmon.exe, copy.exe, host.exe, Svchost.exe, etc. Regardless of their propagation vector being the subject, these infections are classics in their avowed purpose. These infections once present on your pc act as a good trojan. They enable remote access to your system, download code on the net change entries in the registry, etc. You can put a usb antivirus in your system.

    This will copy and paste automatically on your USB drive files related to infection, the attributes "hidden" and "System". Infections in effect disable the display of hidden files and folders in case where you have activated these options display. So you will not see the presence of these files on the infected PC, and the key. The attribute "system" will terrify you if you want to delete them manually presenting a warning message windows. Next variants, these files are not the same, but there will almost always an Autorun.inf file that is allowing it to spread and will receive our full attention.
