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
agreed about the complications but I'l let you guys figure out the wrikles.
Just so you know on the various infected USB sticks I am scanning there are usually 2-3 active files containing the payload. At the moment they are all on the root of the drive but I am sure some bright virus writing spark would just shift the location of the files if the root were scanned by default.
