Hi, I don't think all the laptops are corrupted, mine is ok (scan perform as a precaution).
Canon EOS 40D | EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Mine were clean too, scanned my transferred folders and the cards then formatted to be safe.
This reminds me of the H1N1... the more people are connected, the faster the virus (pun intended) will spread.
As stated above from my other thread. Hope you guys clear it. I think i deleted it already and copied my photos outta that crap :P Darn downloading points.Ok guys, There is a virus detected in my card at the moment BUT I am not sure if it's the virus at the stations. This is it. Detected by AVS and Norton.

i think lots of participants had the virus originally in their cards, hence infecting the downloading station coms, and hence passing it on to others.
i think it's participants' responsibility to ensure their own cards are virus free, it just takes some irresponsible users to harm everyone, including the organizers. I doubt the organizers would wanna spend extra time to scan everyone's cards before allowing downloading, the logistics might turn out to be a nightmare.
i believe their coms/macs are "wiped clean" before being used for the competition, and another "wipe" after the competition. So i guess, it's just plain unlucky for those who kena. I too found some on my card, after discovering my sd card had something "service manger.exe" or similar at the printing station. Did a scan on my own com, cleared it, download the photos, put back the card into cam and format. Probably will do another full scan on my com later.
Another year's marathon gone, lets look forward to the next, and hope there's more improvements (actually last year, i too kena virus on sd card, did the same procedure too).
I am using AVG 8.5 free version now.
Scan my card just now, seems like it is not affected by the virus.
Not so sure whether it is really not affected or not.
Anyone can detect that virus using AVG 8.5 free version?
