USB Guardian : Protects from malicious Viruses

Posted by

USB Guardian is a free application which protects your PC from attack by malware trying to deliver menacing payloads to your system, when you insert a flash drive into the USB slot.

USB thumb drives have become a commodity and this fact is actively being exploited by criminals who have developed special viruses and worms which infect USB storage devices like thumb drives, cameras and even mobile phones.

It is possible to give a USB flash drive / USB memory stick a behaviour that is very similar to auto starting CD’s and DVD’s. The only difference is that the user must press Enter or OK before the program is launched or the document shown, but after doing that things works in the same way. This poses a huge security risk because you can ,unwittingly, run malicious software such as worms and viruses.

This is where USB Guardian comes into rescue, the application constantly monitors your USB slots and when a drive is inserted, it automatically blocks the autorun file, and then isolates any potential malware threats on the drive.

USB Guardian is a special software application which prevents your computer to get infected with nasty viruses an worms like Conficker (aka Downandup, Downadup and Kido!) which have spread already to over 9 million computers.

This app allows you to safely enjoy file sharing using just a USB thumb drive for copying the files . Movies, mp3, documents and pictures can be copied from one computer to another without worrying of getting infected with worms and viruses trough USB drive.
