Virus vs USB

Posted on

PandaLabs,  Panda Security’s antimalware lab, has found that 25 percent of new worms have been specifically designed to spread through USB storage devices connected to computers. These types of threats can copy themselves to any device capable of storing information – cell phones, external hard drives, DVDs, flash memory devices, and MP3/4 players.

Approximately 48 percent of small and medium businesses (with up to 1,000 computers) admit to having been infected by some type of malware over the last year; 27 percent confirmed the source of the infection was a USB device connected to a computer.

So watch it!
