Storage device has a permanent virus



What is Virus? Vital Information Resources Under Seize. Virus is a program. The difference between normal program and Virus program it that Virus program runs automatically at its own without the prior concern of the user.

So Virus belongs everywhere i.e. under all programs. Some are week and some are strong. We use Antivirus to heal my computer from Virus.

But there is some strong Virus we cannot protect them. However, Virus remains everywhere. The point is that sometimes it becomes week and protected by your program.

Every storage device runs under some program. So it is not impossible to remain Virus there.  

I hope you understand it.

I totally disagree with what your teacher says. It’s kind of absurd. It’s like he’s already saying that all storage devices manufacturers are the main culprits in spreading viruses all over the world.

This is not true and I think was all made up just to put fear on students so they won’t easily exchange different storage medias or devices.

Borrowing other’s USB flash drive, for example, is one of the big reasons why viruses are very rampant and mainly infects USB flash drives.

Since floppy disks are now obsolete, programmers are now focusing their attention on different media like the flash drive because this is the most popular type of storage media nowadays because of its capacity, physical size, and portability.

Unlike the usual floppy disk that can easily get scratches and immediately corrupting the files, in a USB flash drive there is no possibility of corrupting the files as long as you use it properly.

You will only get data corruption if you misuse it like unplugging the flash drive while it is still being read or immediately disconnecting the USB drive from the port without safely removing it first from within the desktop.
