- Detecting malware-infected USB drives 5 answers
What measures should I take to avoid any infection through USB devices?
For example, there is a tiny virus called shortcut which hides your files and put shortcuts instead. I was wondering if there are some special measures besides the traditional ones (updated antivirus, firewall...)? Should we disable them and enable on demand or set privileges on them, what do you propose?
