Wow I need to get a U3 Thumbdrive !

A thumbdrive with 2 partition, 1 which emulate a CD/DVDrom device when plugged into your workstation.

Quoted from Wikipedia, “USB flash drives adhering to the U3 specification are termed “U3 smart drives” by U3.com. “U3 smart drives” differ from traditional USB flash drives because they come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad, which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation.”

Autorun ? Payload ? Malware ? endless ways to go right through your cleverly laid perimeter security.
