Have you ever considered security dangers associated with USB storage devices? The new feature will prevent malware-infested memory sticks, flash drives etc. from bringing harm to your PC!
In order to combat malware which spreads via USB storage devices by using Windows autorun vulnerability, Outpost 7.5 now includes specific USB virus protection that may operate in a few scenarios. Advanced users can opt to:
- Disable the launch of autorun.inf file without blocking the programs
- Completely block the USB device
- Block ALL executable files and scripts on the USB device / just executables and scripts unverified with the publisher's digital signature
Moreover, the autorun section of storage devices is checked for malware before all other data to immediately pinpoint suspicious activity and save resources.
