'USB Firewall' recommended by 'Tech' - any issues?
« on: March 06, 2009, 02:06:47 PM »
Hi all.

Since 'Tech' mentioned it here I've installed Neo Studio USB Firewall on a number of XP PCs (and 1 with 98SE) without any problems, or any detections!
Before I start recommending it to other users, are there any cons I should be aware of?

I think not. It does a very good job avoiding infections from USB drivers and, imho, better than using Flash Disinfector.

But I don't understand some things: What are the principles of its functioning? Has it any database? Or it does some sort of heuristic analysis?

It analyze the autorun.inf and block behavior of executables and, maybe, some other ones.

So it reads autoran.inf to find out what executables are allowed and blocks executables not listed there? And what will it do if a virus modified the autoran.inf?

It blocks the autorun.inf execution itself, without removing the autorun Vista/XP feature.

Well, I only tested on Vista and USB drives.
I think that if it works on Vista, will do it on XP.

Hi all.

Before I start recommending it to other users, are there any cons I should be aware of?

When I try to download I  get ERROR 404 - PAGE NOT FOUND

I can't even log into the site.

I don't want to buy a rar unpacker.

If its not a zip or exe file then I'll skip it.

Many archive tools like 7zip (free) can open .rar files so you shouldn't need to buy anything.
