I’m sure you all remember my previous post about the Autorun-Based Malware where I have mentioned how it works and what can some of the workarounds be. We all know that everyday more of these autorun based malware is in the rise and the most widely way it uses to propagate is through USB sticks.


Today thanks to BinGiba; I read about this small nifty freeware program called Ninja Pendisk: it is designed for guarding computers against viruses transmitted by USB pendisks and how it can uncover the commonly malicious or virulent files known as “autorun.inf” and “ctfmon.exe” amongst many others. It also immunizes the pendisk and creates a folder called autorun.inf with special protection permissions to protect your pendisk from being infected again when plugged on infected computers.


Side note: ==== I simply hate autorun based malware. ====


So called, Ninja Pendisk is fully portable, self-contained and requires no installation. The tool has the capability to update by itself from a known webserver for the updated list or a newer version but then you have to make an exception on your firewall to allow that.


Depending on your technicality level there is this file called ninja.txt that contains the database of dangerous files and action to be taken in order to immunize pendisks, so make sure to modify only if you have enough level of expertise to play with it. I will not talk much about the LAN Chat feature it has J a one-to-all like a broadcast. Oh and it works both on XP and Vista only.


A complete forum talking about it here. The blog here.



Happy Ninja(ing);
