FYI,

Avast detected a decompression bomb in the ESP32 DevKit from https://www.espressif.com/

First, what is a decompression bomb?

Second, an ESP32 is not an Arduino.

Third, it sounds like the problem is in the code that would run on the PC and not something that would be in the code on the actual ESP32.


This Thread is about the possibility of a virus being created which runs on an Arduino board and which can propagate itself between Arduino boards.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Compressed file that has unbounded decompression.  The goal is to fill your storage device with garbage.  For a modern operating system it's essentially an annoying childish prank.

I do wonder if one could be designed to damage an SSD.

It sounds like a download package from somewhere NOT associated to Arduino.
ERGO somebody else problem that should be reported to the other source or site etc.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
