    News: Autorun malware being routed, says Microsoft

    THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2011 | techworld Bookmark and Share

    The battle against ‘Autorun’ malware, once a major threat to PC users, appears to be heading for victory according to new figures put out by Microsoft that show big declines in infection rates during 2011.

    Between January and May 2011, the number of Autorun-related malware infections detected by Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) dropped 59 percent on XP machines and 74 percent on Vista, compared to the levels seen in 2010, equivalent to a 1.3 million drop.

    The transformation appears to date from the retrofitting in January of this year of security that allowed the Autorun feature to be turned off on Windows XP and Vista for risky media such as USB sticks but not for others such as C Ds and DVDs. Windows 7 shipped with this feature and so wasn’t included in the analysis.
