Magic Disk

What is Magic Disk?

Magic Disk, also known as Mgdisk, is a potentially unwanted program. At the time of research, our malware experts could not find an official download source that would represent this strange application. That, of course, does not mean that it is not spread. It appears that this program is being distributed using software bundles, which means that it can be spread along with other potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and even malicious infections. Do you remember specifically which programs were installed along with the suspicious one discussed in this report? Even if you do, and you are sure that they are harmless and do not need to be deleted, installing a legitimate malware scanner is an important step. Depending on the installer that is used, malware could be dropped silently, and you do not want to remain oblivious to that, do you? Whether you need to remove Magic Disk alone, or you are dealing with a bunch of threats, this article should help you.test

How does Magic Disk work?

The analysis conducted in our internal lab has shown that Magic Disk is signed by Chengdu Cuopu Technology Co., Ltd., and that is identified as an unreliable company. There’s also suspicion towards the publisher of the potentially unwanted program, which, according to our malware researchers, is linked to Mobogenie, another suspicious piece of software that has to do with suspicious activity. Needless to say, something is fishy here. When you are introduced to the PUP, you might be provided with some information regarding its activity; however, trusting it can be risky. Once the program is installed, its interface does not offer information either. It simply displays “New,” “Import,” and “Settings” menu tabs, which you, allegedly, can use to create password-protected ISO files and build them as drives on the Windows operating system. Although the program might appear to be beneficial to some, it is too suspicious to trust, and this is why our research team recommends deleting Magic Disk.

What do you know about Magic Disk? Most likely, you know just the things that you were presented by the creator of this strange application during the installation. Even if it works the way you expected it to, you need to consider a few things. For one, are you sure that this program is not being used for malicious purposes? In many cases, seemingly beneficial and harmless PUPs are being used to record information, steal data, and track user activity in an intrusive manner. At this point, we cannot guarantee that this is how Magic Disk works too, but there is no doubt that it tracks activity in one way or another, and it is up to you to decide whether or not you want to take the risk. After all, you do not know much about this program, do you? On top of that, the application is quite buggy, and it does not work all that well, which is another reason to delete it without further hesitation.

How to remove Magic Disk

If you are still thinking about installing Magic Disk, we suggest that you find something better to serve you because this application is incredibly suspicious and mysterious. At this point, it is not known if it could be used in a malicious manner, but there is no doubt that it can track information, and that could be done in an intrusive way. Since the PUP does not have an official installer – from what we could find – it is likely to come bundled with other programs, and these could be malicious. Have you downloaded the PUP but did not notice anything else? Use a malware scanner to confirm that threats do not exist. If malware is found, you must remove it immediately. Even if you face much bigger infections, you must delete Magic Disk, and you can do that manually using the guide below, or you can install anti-malware software to take care of that automatically. Go with the latter option if you also need to erase other threats, or if you are worried about virtual security overall.
