How to protect your USB from getting infected by Virus
« on: December 23, 2013, 12:29:40 PM »


AS an IT repair guy, i often have to disinfect computer from malwares.
 So i need my tools to be on my USB to do my job, unfortunately some systems have malwares that infect my USB flash/pendrive right away after i insert it.
 Of course , i dont want to format my USB and recopy all my tools after each interventions...
 
 There is some solutions/alternatives to that like:
 
 - using a media disc (CD, DVD, etc...): of course it is safe but quite expensive if i need to update my tools.
 
 - using a USB with write-protected switch: the simplest method, but a bit pricey especially if you already have many USBs.
 
 the free solutions available are:
 
 USB WriteProtector
 
 USB Defender (i am using this one, thanks to Littlebits)
 
 Windows Autorun Disable by SecurityXploded v.1.0
 
 MCShield
 
 of course , they are not the perfect solutions, but better than nothing ;) :D protect
