Avoid Viruses Disable AutoRun

Panda USB Vaccine is a tool from Panda Security that will help you to prevent infections to your computer via the autorun feature found with Windows. The tool stops malware viruses from entering your computer after you execute the tool. You can choose between USB Drive vaccination and Computer Vaccination.

The Windows operating system uses the Autorun.inf file to remove drives so it can tell which actions to perform when an external device is inserted into your computer such as a CD/DVD or USB drive. The autorun.inf file is a file that can be configured and is usually found in the root directory of media and other removable items.

What is wrong with this is that this same feature is used by malware to spread infection when a new drive is inserted into your computer. The way in which the malware does this is by copying a dangerous executable in the drive and then changing the autorun.inf file so your system opens the threat as soon as you mount the drive. A few examples of this include the W32/Virutas, W32/Sality, and W32/Conficker worm. The malware not only spreads the virus through your computer and shared components through your network but also through USB drives.

Computer Vaccination gives you the ability to provide your computer with a vaccine that will disable AutoRun so that no other program will be able to auto execute including USB, CD, DVD drives.

USB Vaccination is designed to be used on one USB drive to disable AutoRun.inf file to stop malware infections from spreading. When the program is executed, it will block the autorun.inf file from being read, created, changed, or deleted. At this time, the program works with FAT & FAT32 USB drives. Once the vaccination has been executed, it cannot be reversed without using a format.
