Pen drives

The main drawback of pendrive is its easy attack of Trojan horse.....malware,spyware etc...All these malicious programs will first create an "autorun.inf" file in your pendrive...with this.it starts multiplying.To avoid this.....create an emty text file.....with the same name "autorun.inf". Copy this into your pendrive.....Right click over that file & go to 'properties'select "Hiddden" & the important "read only" options......thats all 90% of attack is avoided......Hope this will helps..........Regards Rj..........

what is trojan horse virus

A Trojan Horse is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse it was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but will actually do damage once installed or run on your computer. Those on the receiving end of a Trojan Horse are usually tricked into opening them because they appear to be receiving legitimate software or files from a legitimate source. When a Trojan is activated on your computer, the results can vary. Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious (like changing your desktop, adding silly active desktop icons) or they can cause serious damage by deleting files and destroying information on your system. Trojans are also known to create a backdoor on your computer that gives malicious users access to your system, possibly allowing confidential or personal information to be compromised. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not reproduce by infecting other files nor do they self-replicate.

Please rate the solution if helpful. Thank you

Rogue adware is software that uses malware (malicious software) or malicious tools to advertise or install itself or to force computer users to pay for removal of nonexistent spyware. Rogue software will often install a trojan horse to download a trial version, or it will do other unwanted things.
