In the current day and age of technology everyone uses usb sticks to carry around information virtually. The most advanced known malware is Stuxnet, and the main way Stuxnet spread from computer to computer was via USB thumb drives.
Malware programmers have been using this method for years, and it is hard to defend against these kinds of security risks.
This program that has been around for a while, it runs in the background of your computer and scans autorun.inf files which are what runs the hidden malware located on flash drives/phones or any other memory enabled device. This is a very helpful tool to defend against these kinds of attacks.
Added: ‘Malware Scan’ option to scan the infected storage device using Microsoft Security Essentials’ command line scanner (only works with version 2.1.1116.0 and above) after removing the suspicious ‘autorun.inf’ file.
Added: ‘MSE Scan Log’ option to view the Microsoft Security Essentials scan log.
Removed: ‘Priority’ option in the tray menu.
Removed: Removed some redundant code to improve startup time and performance.
Changed: Tweaks to program behaviour.
You can install the new version over the old version(exit v2.5 first).
