I have a device which has been infected with a malware (the one which transform file to .lnk, windows shortcut). After cleaning, it didn t show on windows, but on linux.
I ended up to dd /dev/zero on it, the time to get mkfs.ntfs (even thought it take way much time to wipe than download) to be sure the malware were truly gone.
Now, mkfs say the device is 0kb, as do windows.
Did I just brick the USB storage?
