Panda USB and AutoRun Vaccine

UPDATE October 8, 2009: New version 1.0.1.4 released.

The Microsoft Windows Operating Systems use the AUTORUN.INF file from removable drives in order to know which actions to perform when a new external storage device, such as a USB drive or CD/DVD, is inserted into the PC. The AUTORUN.INF file is a configuration file that is normally located in the root directory of removable media and contains, among other things, a reference to the icon that will be shown associated to the removable drive or volume, a description of its content and also the possibility to define a program which should be executed automatically when the unit is mounted.

The problem is that this feature, widely critizised by the security community, is used by malware in order to spread by infecting as soon as a new drive is inserted in a computer. The malware achieves this by copying a malicious executable in the drive and modifying the AUTORUN.INF file so that Windows opens the malicious file silently as soon as the drive is mounted. The most recent examples of this are the W32/Sality, W32/Virutas and also the W32/Conficker worm which, in addition to spreading via a vulnerability and network shares, also spreads via USB drives.

Due to the large amount of malware-related problems associated with Microsoft AutoRun we have created a free utility for our user community called Panda USB Vaccine.

Computer Vaccination

The free Panda USB Vaccine allows users to vaccinate their PCs in order to disable AutoRun completely so that no program from any USB/CD/DVD drive (regardless of whether they have been previously vaccinated or not) can auto-execute. This is a really helpful feature as there is no user friendly and easy way of completely disabling AutoRun on a Windows PC.

USB Vaccination

The free Panda USB Vaccine can be used on individual USB drives to disable its AUTORUN.INF file in order to prevent malware infections from spreading automatically. When applied on a USB drive, the vaccine permanently blocks an innocuous AUTORUN.INF file, preventing it from being read, created, deleted or modified. Once applied it effectivelly disables Windows from automatically executing any malicious file that might be stored in that particular USB drive. The drive can otherwise be used normally and files (even malware) copied to/from it, but they will be prevented from opening automatically. Panda USB Vaccine currently only works on FAT & FAT32 USB drives. Also keep in mind that USB drives that have been vaccinated cannot be reversed except with a format.

Download

Panda USB Vaccine is a 100% free utility. We’ve tested it under Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP1-SP3,  and Windows Vista SP0 and SP1. Feedback is always welcomed. Click on the download button below to start downloading.

Get it from CNET Download.com!

Command line Operation

For advanced users who wish to run Panda USB Vaccine automatically at boot to notify every time a new USB device is mounted on the system or to perform network-wide computer vaccinations via login scripts or other distribution methods, Panda USB Vaccine can be operated via command-line. Its input parameters are the following:

USBVaccine.exe [ A|B|C|Z ] [ +system|-system ] [ /resident [/hidetray] ]

[drive unit]:     Vaccinate drive unit
+system:      Computer vaccination
-system:        Remove computer vaccination
/resident:      Start program hidden and prompt for vaccinating every new drive
/hidetray:      Hides tray icon when used with the /resident command

Examples:
To vaccinate USB drives F: and G:, use
USBVaccine.exe F G

To vaccinate the computer, use
USBVaccine.exe +system

To vaccinate computer and prompt for vaccinating every new drive without showing a tray icon, use
USBVaccine.exe /resident /hidetray +system

It could be very useful to create a Shortcut in the Startup folder to USBVaccine.exe with this last command line (or without the /hidetray) to make sure that every time you boot the computer USBVaccine gets loaded by the system and it vaccinates the computer and prompts the user for vaccinating any new non-vaccinated USB drive. However if you do this under Vista, UAC will block it from running at Startup as it requires admin priviledges. We’ll fix this in future versions.

    Sorry Andrew I don't understand your question.

    Alex, there are a variety of reasons why we don't participate in VB tests. From our perspective in order to give a good judgement of a product's ability to protect users you need to evaluate it as a whole, not only parts of it. Modern anti-malware products incorporate many protection technologies but some people like you seem to think that AV is stuck since 15 years ago where there were only static signatures. There are other independent tests which we do participate in for many many years:

    * ICSA (USA)
    * West Coast CheckMark (UK)
    * AV-Test.org (Germany)
    * PCSecurityLabs (China)

    Tonydi, a format will of course disable the vaccination of Panda USB Vaccine.

    Step 1. Start Notepad or another text editor.

    Step 2. Copy the following text from this page and paste it into your text editor (everything between the square brackets should be all on one line):

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionIniFileMappingAutorun.inf]

    @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

    Step 3. Save the file with a name like NoAutoRun.reg, taking care to include the .reg extension.

    Step 4. Right-click your .reg file and choose Merge. Confirm any warning prompts to add the information to the Registry.

    Ok, perhaps you should re-word that section. It makes it sound like you modify the drive in a way that’s completely irreversible. Perhaps something like…

    “Also keep in mind that USB drives that have been vaccinated cannot be reversed without reformatting the drive.”

    Solaris, your procedure is exactly right for "Computer Vaccination" so that Windows will not know how to parse autorun.inf files. There's a variety of utils out there that do the same. However that's not enough for vaccinating individual USB drives.

    Tonydi, you're right. I'll reword it.

    Jim, thanks for the link. However Panda USB Vaccine uses a much different, safer, technique by modifying the USB drive itself. Also the article you mention only works on 2000/XP/2003.

    Xavier, "Computer Vaccination" works on NTFS. It is only "USB Drive Vaccination" that works on FAT/FAT32 currently. However keep in mind that the vast mayority of USB drives come preformatted in FAT/FAT32 anyway.

    I was hit with conficker and Panda caught/cleaned it but on re-start, Windows would not load (Vista Business SP1). I could not run repair and had no restore point so I ended up rebuilding. Once done, and Panda re-installed, again it flagged a file as conficker, removed it and then I was unable to start Windows again w/o returning to a newly created restore point. Since then, I have not installed Panda but AVG and have had no issues. Is this something expected and has Panda upgraded/updated to prevent this from happening?

    THANKS – This virus is a VERY common for shared computers.

    How exactly does this modify the USB drive?

    Presently I am using Flash Disinfector -
    http://experi3nc3.wordpress.com/2007/05/10/flash-disinfector-by-subs/
    to clean virus/trojans and then Immunize both the PC & USB drives on shared computers. After it cleans it writes a locked AUTORUN.INF folder/file to the root of all the HDs & USB drives to Immunize them from future infections.

    Is your program compatible with the above and can it be run after Flash Disinfector has been run?
    Will it vaccinate the USB drives using a different compatible method for for added protection?

    From my experience you *DEFINITELY* need the capability of resident protection in your program as well to guard against new infections from new infected USB drives. Hope you add that as well.
    I currently install Autorun Eater v2.3 for resident protection
    http://oldmcdonald.wordpress.com/
    but it is not perfect and sometimes allows the virus to write files to the PC.

    Mahtab, can you give more details on the model of the device so we can check this out. Thanks for the comment.

    uv.kid, a bat file will not do the trick as the moment you insert the drive into your PC autorun will execute whatever program it is told to. You could manually delete the autorun.inf from each of your drives but it could be re-infected when you insert it into another PC. The safest way is to disable its autorun.inf capabilities all together.

    Bharat, thanks for your feedback, we’ll take it into consideration for next versions. But in order to prevent potential abuse by malware authors of the technique we use in the USB Vaccine, we will not release this information yet.

    Paulo, yes a special autorun.inf that cannot be read, modified or deleted is created on the USB drive when vaccinating it.

    In a firm, When you have vaccinated drives, how do you recognised a vaccined drive from a drive containing a virus?

    I'd recommend it if you file created on the usb drive was immune.inf or Anti-autorun.INF instead of autorun.inf, but that is NOT the case!

    We, users and IT technical service would like a shield "around" our usb key, and not a kind of "none" infected autorun that stops infected autorun to put themselves on the drive.

    Sounds good, but how do I vaccinate my USB-stick *before* I plug it into a Windows computer? I’m currently on a Mac at home, so I tried downloading the Vaccine directly to the stick, and while it was possible to unzip it, it wasn’t possible to run it. I’ve heard of something called Wine – would that work or do I have to actually plug in my stick to a Windows machine before I can vaccinate it (and thus risk infection, of course)?

    On the official download page (http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/downloads/usbvaccine/) Panda don’t mention that the the process is not reversible on USB sticks and the much more important information is hidden well behind the question mark on the bottom of the GUI: “…under some very unlikely conditions some applications could stop working.”

    I think it is a real shame! You *must* provide this information on the public download page with big, bold, red characters!! If i would knew this… :-(

    Any other solution? BTW the visible partition is a CDFS one, so theoretically this application can’t do the job on it as we know: “…currently only works on FAT & FAT32 USB drives.”. But what happens then on this CDFS partition!?

    @Killer22,
    you cannot delete the autorun.inf file because the USB drive is vaccinated. If you want to keep it vaccinated you should not try to delete it. If you want to reverse vaccination, backup the data in the drive and then format the USB drive.

    @MrMagic,
    I don’t think I understand correctly what you mean. If you disabled autorun.inf files in all workstations via GPO, can you use Panda USB Vaccine on USB drives or not?

    @Bharat Balegere,
    This is an interesting idea, thank you. However I think it is more oriented to a different type of tool. Maybe a separate tool for preventing certain plugins, dll’s, etc for specific programs?

    Good news! After trying the mentioned pendrive on another (never vaccinated) computer and found it works, i’ve unvaccinated the 1st machine and now the Cruzer is working nearly proprely on it too. The only strange side effect of this process is that now the pendrive runs automatically, although i’ve blocked tha autorun function for all drives by Microsoft Powertoys TweakUI. In this little app i see that autorun is still disabled, but practically it is not!

    I’ve made another run with this combination (for recheck) and the events was the same. When vaccinated the machine: the Cruzer doesn’t work. When unvaccinated the *machine*: the Cruzer works again.

    So the situation is not that really bad, but i can’t use this Panda freeware till i want to use my Cruzer.

    dont use this program before read all posts above

    P.S.: very good idea of product – i will use when it will have “UNVaccine USB Drive” and if it will allow keep attributes (as hidden) after vaccine

    When USBVacine is run in resident mode it needs to click [yes] in dialog window to close the application before the comuter may shut down. This is _very_ inconvenient.

    Hello Pedro. Thank you very much for this wonderful little tool.

    I have Vista (Greek) with SP1. When I run USBVaccine I protected my machine (worked fine) but I could’t protect the usb drives (FAT formated). It gave me and error message. So I went to another machine (XP) and tried again. It work fine and vaccined the USB drives. I even tried to delete autorun.inf and I couldn’t.

    Then I came back to my Vista pc and rerun the prog, and it correctly shown that the usb drive was vaccinized. When I tried to delete ANY file that was in my usb drive (photo,docs, etc) I COULDN’T !!!!

    I tried different usb drives (not vaccinized at all) and I couldn’t delete any file either !!!!
    So I imagine that something changed to the pc and has nothing to do with the usb drives.
    I tried to delete my files from my usb drives from other pc and it works fine !!!

    I can upload screenshots or videos if you want. Your advice is more than appreciated.
    Please help !!!

    I have used your sw to vaccinate a USB pen drive. Well, I want to see the new autorun.inf but Windows does not permits me.
    Then I could see the content of the file, using Linux. Well, after that, I used the pen drive in a laptop under Windows XP.

    I don’t know if it was because of the use under Linux, or because of the use in the laptop, but then I could read and write the autorun.inf (it has something like this: caacaaacaaa). I had vaccinate the pen-drive again.

    There was not any virus in the pen-drive. This is very strange!

    USB Vaccine won’t inoculate my USB pendrive if iKill is on, which always is the case in my desktop PC. I haven’t tried yet, but the autorun.inf that USB Vaccine created will most likely get decimated as soon as a “vaccinated” pendrive is inserted into any iKill-guarded system. Just a heads-up.

    One thing that I noticed which possibly can be improved, is that on one WinXP laptop that I put this on, when I tell the computer to Shut Down it hangs up because a popup appears asking if I really want to close the program (because it is in resident mode), then Windows waits for 30 seconds and just prompts me to End Program or not and does not automatically close as part of the Shut Down sequence. Just a little thing that would be great to improve so I can say “ShutDown” and walk away.

    But — the program is a genius one otherwise and I am glad you came up with it! I am still using it and telling others to use it because it has already slowed down viruses here! Thanks.

    How to remove vaccination from usb…
    Open your USB drive using winhex disk tool…
    When you open it winhex detect an error at offset xxxxx. Go at this offset and you’ll see AUTORUN INF@
    Edit the @ (40h) and replace with 20h (space).
    Enjoy…you must delete autorun.inf

    No problem! Burn a CD with Ubunto 9.04, restart your Windows computer and boot from the cd (before windows start) in “live mode, without installation” when desktop finally appears insert the USB key (an icon will appear in the desktop), see the contents and delete the autorun.inf created by Panda USB Vaccine (if problems arrive, see the properties > permission, and change for read & write, save and try to delete again). You are done!

    The trick with your tool doesn’t work if the USB flash is inserted into a Linux machine. The files are somehow given the default priveleges after being unmounted and inserted back into a Windoze one. Unfortunately. You should have a look at this.

    It seems as you “simply” change the Attributes field to 0×40 for the autorun.inf file in the Root Directory. A virus with admin privileges can easily undo that (just no one does as of now, because the tool is still too unknown). I tried it with tiny hexer and could write to the file again.

    Yes it should be possible to just mark the file hidden+system. (use 0×46 instead of 0×40 for the attributes). Changing the filename (at least in Explorer) should work too, just create a long filename like AUTORUNDISABLED.INFORMATION (where the short name starts with the long name for both filename and extension) and then tweak the AUTORU~1.INF entry in the Root Directory to read AUTORUN.INF (you will have to adjust the checksum in all the LFN entries from 0×96 to 0xE0 to do this).

    I tried all this with a disk editor, and the result was an autorundisabled file which was hidden and inaccessible, but which was still found when explicitly searching for AUTORUN.INF and which prevented me from creating another AUTORUN.INF for that same reason.

    So, a tool which checks for AUTORUN.INF will still find this file, but a tool which reads through the directory list (like Explorer) will only find the autorundisabled file.

    [No, I won't make a unvaccine tool available, those who understand how FAT32 works (or can find the spec on wotsit.org) can undo it with a disk editor if they like and the others should reformat it. Hopefully, virus authors don't know how FAT32 works...]

    @Tokidoki18, try backing up your data and then re-formating the USB stick. Are you then able to vaccinate it?

    @Reinwald, Panda USBVaccine only creates a AUTORUN.INF file which cannot be opened/modified/deleted from Windows. Other infected computers can still copy infected .EXE files to the USB stick, USBVaccine simply prevents the infected EXE from executing automatically.

    >Hi,

    >Need help urgently!!! Computer cannot shutdown after using Panda USB Vaccine. Everytime need
    to click on END PROGRAM for Panda USB Vaccine then only can shutdown computer. Please help.

    >Thank you.

    I decided this problem by editing Windows registry in WinXP:
    ////
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]
    “HungAppTimeout”=”4000″
    “WaitToKillAppTimeout”=”5000″
    ////
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControl]
    “WaitToKillServiceTimeout”=”20000″
    ////

    Whrere “4000″, “5000″ and “20000″ – time in milliseconds. You can edit, if needed, as you like.
    Recomendations^
    Copy this 2 text (from /// to ///) in two files with extension reg and run it.
    F’example:
    first file named: 1.reg must contain

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]
    “HungAppTimeout”=”4000″
    “WaitToKillAppTimeout”=”5000″

    Second – 2.reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControl]
    “WaitToKillServiceTimeout”=”20000″

    @CurlySue, there’s no way to un-vaccinate from within Windows other than to backup your files and format the USB drive.

    @Redsec, you can use the same parameters but without /hidetray and then you’ll be able to see it running.

    @munky, download Panda USB Vaccine, vaccinate your computer & vaccinate each of your USB sticks. Then, one by one, insert your USB sticks and scan them with your AV or even better with http://www.activescan.com.

    @Mitchell, we'll try to get one of those and study the problem.

    I’m glad because this latest version 1.0.0.50 always vaccinate and never prompts, and still comes with the portable version. I have some suggestions: This program could delete the remaining AUTORUN_.INF file and could delete the folder RECYCLE inside the pen (or heal RECYCLE and make it unwritable by the virus too, it could be with hidden property). Also, I think if there would be a easy way (icon?) to distinguish this healed autorun.inf from infected autorun.inf to prevent people to make some mistake.

    Also, I noticed that in the installed version, a folder AUTORUN_.INF is always created, even the pendrive is empty (reformatted).

    Also I would like to suggest to add an option in the command line:

    USBVaccine.exe F G /resident F G

    The last F and G drive letters could be the drives that you like to use the /resident parameter.

    It could prevent some errors in the newer version. When I opened usbvaccine 1.1.0.50 in one of my computer I got a error dialog box because the program is searching for drive A: (but I only use pendrive as drive F: and next letters). In older version 1.10.0.19 it doesn’t happens, but I always need to click OK to exit or to shutdown the computer. =(

    I’ve inserted an infected USB and that tool automatically “vaccineted” it by doing it’s trick with the _existing_ infected binary autorun.inf.
    That makes it hard to fix it (I have to backup data and reformat).

    Please make your tool smarter!

    Well, I don’t know how effective this will prove in the long run, but I have to give you credit for this simple and effective approach. The culprit behind almost all viruses is the annoying autorun feature of windows. So far, I’ve been doing all data transfer in linux for the same reasons. But hopefully, I can do that in windows as well!

    Thanks for a great product!

    Great Utility. Makes sense, since I wasn’t able to find setting for disabling “Autorun for drives” under Vista (it was in WinXP) and the USB Firewall 1.1.3 is buggy and the USB Disk Security tool is not free and it runs every 10 seconds at about 10% of processing power. Panda runs quiet and very lite on resources. Very nicely programmed.

    Just to let everybody like me know.. If you try to vaccinate a large USB flash drive and start the process and you look and wonder, nothing is happening.. Panda window is “not responding”… just wait… For me it was a slow process, it took approx 15 minutes to vaccinate the drive. (and it is a very fast USB flash disk by all means).

    A nova versao beta da vacina já permite a vacina do disco formatado em NTFS.

    It appears from the above that I cannot reverse the “vaccination” of a USB drive with an autorun.inf file. I tried to re-start the vaccination program, but it stalls & never starts up (Not Responding is a s far as it goes). How do I remove this **** from my computer. As far as I can tell you have destroyed one of my backup drives.

    In the past I’ve just created folder called autorun.inf and that worked for most of the usb virus but not all. This seems to work well.

    For those of you who install this & vaccinate your USB drives.. then complain about not being able to remove the protected autorun.inf file –
    Why have you not read the comments? I mean there have been several posts all asking same thing. Always the same answer by Panda.
    Cannot be edited from within windows & the only solution is to back up data & format the USB device.
    Other removal solutions have included using either a linux computer to remove the autorun.inf or bootable linux cd to remove it.
    No wonder people get infected so often … running/installing stuff without reading up what the program does. Same for “breaking” things..
    Someone says “this is kewl — run it” so people click it without thinking or doing a bit of research first.

    Geeezzz …
    READ the info provided by the Panda team about the tool before blindly running it.
    REad it, absorb it, understand it, then decide if it is useful to your situation.
    The info is there.

    This software works great; thank you.

    One concern: When I enable NTFS, it tries to vaccinate my external hard drive and then hangs for some time. When it did this and my drive was inaccessible, I panicked and terminated the program. Is it supposed to protect hard drives just the same as flash drives, and if so, will it take a long time to vaccinate?

    Thanks

    Sep 11, 2009 - 10:47 AM

    @Ben, the NTFS vaccination process takes some time, which is relative to the capacity of the drive (the larger the drive, the longer the time). While vaccinating it is important NOT to interfere with the process or cancel. If you have cancelled it, run chkdsk /f on the disk and run vaccination again.

    @Diwakar Palsule:

    That is hopefully the autorun.inf created AFTER vaccination, so you have nothing to fear. The idea is precisely to have it there.

    WinHex trick didn’t worked here.

    To have an “undo option” regarding created autorun.inf files is not a good idea because malware authors could reverse engineering the app and make us unhappy.

    There’s a new version (1.0.1.4) available @ download.com.

    Tested with 5 sticks (1, 2, 4, 8 and 16 Gb) along six months and everything is working fine. Thanks a lot and greetings from Brazil.

    Hi!

    I have installed a software (PortableApps) on my USB flash drive, but after using the Panda USB Vaccine, my flash drive looses the autorun function, so that I have to manually run the PortableApps excutable file in order to use it.

    Is there any way to vaccinate my drive by just changing the original autorun.inf file attributes to unwritable, instead of overwriting the autorun.inf with a blank file with unwritable attributes?
    Thanks.

    Hi there,i am using the Panda USB and AutoRun Vaccine 1.0.0.50.My first guestion is,is this the latest ie most recent one,as i am not sure i can tell.

    Also lately the vaccine does not seem to work effectively anymore,as during scanning USB memory sticks,my ‘real time’Antivirus finds a virus sometimes NOT on the USB stick but on the computer.This has happened twice now even though Said USB memory stick and computer ARE vaccinated.Ä°t seems as though the AutoRun is not disabled as it should be.

    Ä° would appreciate any reply.Thank you.

    @alireza, simply uninstall the version you have installed, then download the new version and install again.

    Hi I have selected to show all system files, on my memory stick I have a autorun.inf and a floder called zolander. If I format the stick then the files reappear when you refresh, your usb vaccine says the stick is vaccinated and does not pick up the autorun.inf file as a virus
    Please can you assist

    Great solution to the nasty autorun.inf bugs, but …

    1. I’m still having a little bit of trouble with the vaccination process.
    This is due to having other antivirus softwares (trendmicro) that block user access to usb pens… The workaround was to unload TM and then it worked.

    2. Hoping to see any “settings” menu …

    Autorun.inf file is an application file embedded into your memory stick, its no threat to Panda, this file outo opens your memory files for you to access more with ease. it cant be deleted its emabedded into its ‘fixed startup memory’.chow@PiETER

    After posting a problem here and still waiting for response i Feel that this place to post problems is a total waste of time you can simply look at the posts and the fact there is zero response. PANDA SOFTWARE I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED !!!!

    Nice tool, but the technique used to “permanently” vaccinate USB pen drives, since v1.0.1.4 (before this version, it used the autorun.inf folder + reserved names like LPT1), involves a risky operation, i.e. direct editing of the FAT tables, described here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=94076.
    Be careful…

    1 – I want to choose icon files

    ICON=ICON.ICO

    2 – I want to give name to Usb Drive

    LABEL=SANDISK

    3 – Panda folder can be create in Usb Drive & include Scanner.exe

    Scanner.exe = Your USB Drive Viruses Scanner & Cleaner File

    4 – When i plugin USB Drive there can be a part which i can choose with clicking right mouse.

    shellPanda=Scan with Panda USB Vaccine
    shellPandacommand=Scanner.exe

    Example:

    Hello. If you have vaccinated your external hard drive, the only way you can remove it is formatting it. Thanks!
