People Hate me.
They Claim I am Troublesome, picky and a worry-wart!
Well I am not wrong to protect my "virgin" at all costs!
Won't you protect your sweet daughter from cold clammy (and hairy) fingers?
Well this virgin in question is my Desktop computer.
Its a virgin because I refuse removable drive entry into any of its 8 USB interfaces!
So any files they want from me /want to give me will need to come in the form of a CD/DVD!
Now, the problem with Pen/Thumb/USB/Flash
drives are that some viruses are autoexecuted the moment you plug the memory device into your PC/MAC/Laptop/Netbook
*pant pant pant*
What it means is it may not be safe even to plug it into your Computer system even if you do not execute files within!
--intoducing the scary USB drive of death!--
The modus Operandi of Malware is that it contains an Autorun.inf file that automatically runs a file/program without you the user having any control over it.
I stumbled accross an Anti-Malware application for this purpose at this website
However I decided to scout around for alternatives from more trustworthy sites..
such as CNet's Download.com
and presto you have Autorun Eater at a measly 1.6MB for download, Here.
I guess I am fussy afterall.. Even after installing it.. I'm still having a moral dilemma whether to allow my PC to be Violated.
Condoms for USB drives maybe?
