Malware removal

Malware can effectively be removed from any freebie USB device by placing it in the office microwave for 30 seconds.

The same works with company phone SIM cards when you change jobs - I found 20 seconds to be sufficient actually. You should always follow company policy and use the office microwave and not your own that has not been inspected by the security group.
