Want to protect your USB Flash Drive, iPod and other removable USB storage device from getting infected from virus ?
Viruses spread fastly through pendrives when we use in schools, colleges and office. In order to prevent your USB Drive from getting infected, you will need to create some files on your pen drive like Autorun.inf file(Check this if you face Autorun.inf problem) and some other files which will later prevent the virus infection as these files being already created and cannot be deleted, so that virus or trojan cannot copy files and folders or create them on your USB Drive when you connect your drive to virus infected PC.
There some freeware to vaccinate your USB drives from virus infection. I have already discussed in detail about Panda USB Vaccine 18.104.22.168 .Today I came across a similar tool called USB Defender. Its really cool !!!
Features of “USB Defender”
USB Defender is a simple tool which extremely easy to use.
You can see just two buttons on it: “Protect” and “Unprotect”. First button you are using to vaccinate your drive,
Second button – to remove protection.
When you insert any pendrive USB defender program automatically detects it, if there is any protection active and only one button will be available for you.
USB Defender is fully portable – so you can take it with you wherever you want. Get USB Defender and take it for a spin to see what it can actually do for you!
I enabled show hidden files option and checked pendrive in windows Xp but I found no files. Then I rebooted the sytem and entered Ubuntu 10.04
I inserted pendrive and found USB defender added Autorun.inf and vaccinated it….
Give it a try today !!! 🙂
