about Panda USB Vaccine Jun 2011

USB Drive Vaccination:
Uses an advanced low-level method to create a dummy autorun.inf file on your USB thumb drive that cannot be deleted with standard file system commands. Therefore it protects better against malware infections (trying to replace the autorun.inf file) than older methods that use an autorun.inf folder entry and the system/hidden file system attributes.
Note that it does NOT prevent malicious files being copied to and from the USB drive, just their automatic execution via the autorun feature.
