Mainly when you insert the usb drives in your system or friennd’s machine, because of this autorun feature, the infection inside the usb drives gets affected in the computer. Its spreads rapidly because of this autorun feature. Also Autorun-based malware has been atop of the worldwide e-threat landscape such as Trojan.AutorunInf, the Conficker worm (Win32.Worm.Downadup) or Worm.Autorun.VHD. *as per the Bitdefender page*
BitDefender’s USB immunizer is a small tool has two options. One is, Immunize option allows you to immunize your USB storage device or SD card against infections with autorun-based malware. Even if your storage device has been plugged into an infected computer, the piece of malware will be unable to create its autorun.inf file, thus it prevents auto-launching itself.
Next is it allows you to toggle the autorun feature On or Off for any removable media. Suppose, if you accidentally plug in an infected USB drive that has not been immunized, the computer will not auto-execute the piece of malware located on the USB storage device.
So, I strongly recommend you to have this bitdefender’s usb immunizer. No installation or registration required. Just download and double click to use it.
