The Weirdest Virus Ever? (Possible Help?)
Hello hello, folks!
Today, I've been reached by the weirdest problem I've ever faced in my 22 years of using PCs, never seen anything like this, but maybe some of you may help.
This morning, I was going to open a Photoshop file to Work on, and I noticed that the file was Corrupt. When I took a deeper look on that folder, every JPEG and PSD files on that folder was corrupted. My first thought was "Maybe my Hard Disk is saying goodbye".
Then I started to investigate my whole Hard Disk.
On several folders (Not all of them) JPEG and PSD files were all corrupted.
Message diplayed by Windows Viewer was:
"Windows Photo Viewer Can't open this picture because the file appears to be damaged, corrupted or is too large."
No other kind of file was touched, even when they were at the same folder. No gifs, no PNG, no nothing.
It was too specific to be a Hard Disk Damage, so I started to investigate with all sorts of tools.
Couldn't find any Bad Sectors on the HD, via ScanDisk.
Couldn't find any Virus, tracking cookies or things of sorts.
Found just one Malware.
Luckly, I backed up most of the Work Files (no delivers delayed), but some of my old Work files were lost. Lost some reference images too.
I tried to find what could have caused the damage, but never found anything. The only thing browsers could find, were Pages trying to sell Image Recovery Programs. I tried 3 different sorts, NONE worked.
I don't think there could be a Virus on a JPG itself (you can't execute commands from a JPG), but maybe some sort of program designed to damage the JPG/PSD headers.
So... Have you ever seen anything like this?
Is there any hope to my old JPG files?
What do you think?
