Panda USB Vaccine is a free security utility that allows you to block malware from spreading through USB drives. These types of malware typically install an Autorun.inf file in the root of the USB drive that causes the malware to execute when you insert them into a computer.
Panda USB Vaccine works by not allowing an Autorun.inf file on a USB to be modified, created, deleted, or read. This effectively blocks this type of computer infection from infecting the USB drive. This utility also has the ability to start automatically when your computer starts where it will site quietly running in the background. When a new USB drive is inserted into the computer, it will automatically vaccinate it so that you are protected from the drive and any infections on it are removed.
Even if you choose not to use the memory resident portion of this program, if you routinely use USB drives, it is strongly suggested that you vaccinate them. This will allow you to protect your flash drives from being infected when you use them on other computers.
