This is my first post on SWI. Thanks for the work you do and your engagement :)
With family and friends each possessing numerous devices with flash memory that connect via USB (smartphones, mp3 players, tablets, flash drives...), and these devices moving through various PCs and laptops, I see malware constantly being passed around.
What do you recommend as specific protection?
I've looked at: MCShield, Panda Vaccine, No Autorun, BitDefender Immunizer. Are there any differences between them?
I understand they disable autorun.inf on the flash drive. Do they do anything else?
If a flash drive has been infected, and the contagious file quarantined by a reputable anti-virus (Avast, NOD32, etc...), do you consider it then safe to transfer between machines?
Any other issues or considerations I should be aware of?
