Autorun-/AutoPlay-Patches from Microsoft

win_logoMicrosoft released two new knowledgebase articles in which it makes patches for all actual supported operating systems available. Those patches properly disable the Autorun and AutoPlay feature. This is important as previously it was possible to convince users to execute malware from for example USB sticks with AutoPlay entries and to automatically run malware via Autorun. Disabling Autorun didn’t work as expected before.

To improve the PC security it is advised to install the patches!
