Re: Possible for malware to covertly hide on harddrive sector

said by SweetNoob :

i present an extremely paranoid question. do you think it is possible for malware programmers to create something that lives on a harddrive sector and reinfects the os it was programmed for upon reinstall after a reformat.

Possible if the drive firmware is compromised.
