Microsoft to disable autorun

Posted on Monday, May 04 2009 @ 04:00:04 CEST by


FUD Zilla claims Microsoft is upping the security of its Windows XP, Vista and 7 operating systems by disabling the autorun feature:
Under the plan, Redmond will prevent memory sticks, digital picture frames and other devices that attach to PCs from running automatically when they're plugged in. The only devices that won't be affected are non-writeable DVDs and CD-ROMs, which haven't been spreading malicious code.

Microsoft has always claimed that Autorun was safe, however not it admits that the amount of malware spreading through this feature has shot up.
