<Noob>You lost me at virtualized systems, are you talking about something like "VMware Fusion" because I don't think bootcamp is anything close to that with the partitioning. Are you talking about something like VMware or boot camped partitions on a Mac?</Noob>
I know many of the windows based malwares tend to set their rewrite targets to the traditional C drive, guess I'll have to see if the Mac side of this computer lists the windows partition under a "C drive." Also interesting food for thought, if the piece of malware targets certain directories well known for computer functionality in the C drive, what would happen if you renamed the C drive to something like "Automaticas" drive to obstruct the file paths it tries to rewrite itself into? Could be an interesting way of diffusing (something thing I want to look into) some poorly written malware.
