Hi Malwarebytes support, I wondered if Ethernet adapters, such as the Plugable USB 3.0 to Ethernet Gigabit 10/100/1000 LAN Network Adapter, remain safe against malware since they contain rewriteable firmware in EEPROM. If the product was only connected via the USB 3.0 cable and its circuitry was never removed from the casing and modified, is there any chance this device could retain malware? The reason I ask is I am currently salvaging a Windows PC and want to assess what accessories I may still use. My mouse had to be disposed of due to its ability to store commands, so I'm attempting to be careful. Thank you for your help.
