USB worm is No. 1 malware threat
The trojan Generic! Atr, which spreads via USB devices, is the most common malware issue worldwide according to a new report from McAfee released today. A second virus that targets removable devices is currently in the No. 3 spot. The popularity and portability of USB memory sticks has made them a favorite for hackers. People unwittingly spread the malware every time they plug into a new machine.
Kanguru has integrated Anti-malware protection directly into the Defender Elite flash drive to reduce these threats. Using Bit Defender's AV engine, the Defender Elite will scan files in real time as they are transferred to the device. The flash drive can also be used to disinfect the host computer.
