Is there a way of automatically scanning removable media when attached to a PC? We had an outbreak of conficker a few months back (don't want to go through that again!) and are still getting the odd memory stick attached by teachers that has conficker on. I'd be a lot happier if all memory sticks/USB hard drives were fully scanned each time they were attached!
I am also trying to educate staff to ensure their home PCs are fully protected!
edit - useful info.. We're running Enterprise console 4 and Endpoint security 9
Yes, its a good idea. I'll raise a feature request to cover it. Couple of potential complications:
* the end user may well pull out their USB key once they are alerted to the presence of malware
* I wonder how many times the device will contain multiple pieces of malware - as opposed to one. A different approach would be to ensure that automated cleanup is more rigorous i.e. does more than just delete autorun.inf. I'll ask some in the lab for a comment on this.
