I'm using Ubuntu without ever (knowingly) having had any virus issues.
Recently I put a usb pen in a computer in a print shop, and their Windows machine told me that it was infected. I would like to clean up this usb pen to start using it again.
I hope, that this virus is only for Windows and I am safe. But can I even be sure about that?
Is formatting of a USB pen always enough to be sure that it is clean? Or should I "clean deeper"?
Assuming that the virus is 'dangerous' for my Linux machine (which I hope/think not) how can I safely clean it? I mean, even inserting it into my Linux machine might cause some autorun stuff to happen, right?
