    Is it safe to d-load Windows setup to an infected PC via Microsoft SDM


    I intend to download Windows 7 x64 setup so that I can burn it on a DVD but there is a very persistent USB malware in the PC, and now I am wondering if that malware could somehow "sneak up" into the ISO file that SDM would download and prepare for burning on a disk... If that is the case, then the whole process would be meaningless. Does anyone know?

    Safe is always a relative term. Nobody can answer that question with any degree of certainty.

    Would a malware infiltirate inside an ISO file when it is downloaded by Microsoft Secure download manager?

    Zdravo brate,
    Pitaš da li je dobro da se pokrene Windows setup na zaraženom računaru preko Microsoft Download manager-a?
    Skini ti to negde drugde, bolje ne eksperimentiši. Kakvi Download manageri i čudesa. Skini sa GetIntoPC.

    Not unless you had disabled UAC. If you had it would be simple - unzip an ISO, add something (add something to the .wim as well if you want) and recreate it with oscdimg.exe Obviously malware could do this (and so could you).

    Don't turn off UAC and you'll be OK.

    Just to be sure you could run a checksum on the ISO.

    Ne vidim kako bi bilo drugacije da skinem ISO fajl sa nekog drugog sajta ako skidan na isti racunar. Isti je tip dokuenta koji se preuzima sa oba...

    Well, it's definitely something that Avast doesn't see and BitDefender Live Disk won't remove. What it is it exactly, I don't know...

    It is set like this. I hope that's good enough since the DVD is already burned.
