SafeStick Features Conficker Killer and Anti-malware


Prevent conficker autorun, malware infection. viruses and trojans from spreading over USB into your networks with SafeStick features Authorized Autorun and File Blocker.


Conficker has highlighted the danger of standard removable USB sticks. Conficker implants a malicious autorun.inf on removable media as one modus operandum. Any software encryption or protection of the drive will go lost in the process as the Conficker infection lurks at the host and has the upper hand over the open USB flash drive. Given the unfortunate success for Conficker this is likely something that will be the target for copycat virus hackers and repeated over and over again.

Further more standard devices with or without only software encryption are not able to guarantee data integrity since data can be tampered with, copied, replaced or infected with viruses without user misbehaviour, it only takes one infected host to load up a removable drive with viruses and trojans.


The onboard anti-malware that SafeStick provides with Authorized Autorun and File Blocker further strenghtens the onboard security beyond automatic AES256 hardware encryption. The unique technology aids the user in protecting the device from becoming a liabillity. Rogues files can simply not be copied onto the SafeStick as File Blocker feature defends it automatically. The File Blocker can also be configured in SafeConsole to put in place data storage policies such as banning certain file formats for storage and disabling installation of unauthorized applications. Applications deployed using the SafeConsole feature Publisher is automatically white-listed.

Authorized Autorun has been implemented since SafeStick 3.1.0 and File Blocker will be part of SafeConsole 3.3 presented at this years InfoSecurity 2009 in London at the end of April (requires SafeStick 3.3.0 or later). Visit BlockMaster at stand P75 for a demonstration. All present SafeConsole customers are eligĂ­ble for the update.
