eMMC malware
#1
I ordered a 64GB eMMC for my Rock64.

The eMMC arrived preformatted in exFAT, and contained ransomware.

This is obviously a very serious. Where did you get the module from? the PIne store?

Have you already formatted it or erased the contents?

Thanks on the heads up.  If possible, please provide a close up eMMC photo. I will ask PINE store to make sample check on the eMMC modules that in stock. WE will file complain to eMMC supplier when discover such incident.

I erased the contents as I wanted to get started on my project, but there's little doubt as to what it was.
