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
