Whether McAfee tested the thumbnail drive virus from Mar a largo

President Trump's Mar a Lago winter White House had a woman invade it.  As reported in the media, the Secret Service found a virus on Chinese woman's thumbnail drive  Apr2,2019.  I wish to know 3 things:

  1. Question 1; Whether McAfee read the newspaper article on this virus in the wild?
  2. Questions 2 : name of virus, and
  3. Question 3: whether McAfee tested it.

For ease of discussion, what is the name of the type of malware (e.g. "self-activating virus" is my term) for a virus that allows the thumbnail drive to start infecting as soon as it's attached. And then 3A) has McAfee tested such "self-activating viruses" on other thumbnails.

This was problem SR#2638521471 that I reported on Mon, May 13, 2019.  And I posted this as a question on StackOverflow  

What is really bad about the virus is that as soon as it's plugged in, it immediately starts writing to the laptop.

I think it is reasonable to expect an anti-virus company to handle an "in the wild" virus that is being used over 60 days ago.  According to standards, a company should fix reported problems within 90 days.
