    "A rather strange usb antivirus"

    May 15, 2010   |   By spainach

    Version: Naevius USB Antivirus 2.1

    Pros

    It's light, easy to forget and protects your USB

    Cons

    Sometimes fails to detect usb, most av describes as a virus meaning it doesn't work well with others

    Summary

    I have downloaded this product from the mothersite and it seemed fine when i did a scan using ImmunetProtect, Panda Cloud, Malwarebytes, SUPERAntispyware, Threatfire, Dr. Web CureIt, and finally, Avira Antivir. The trouble is the way it protects your USB. It does so by completely reformatting your USB to make sure there are no viruses in it, and then placing a non-deletable, dummy autorun.inf file to confuse any virus that should attempt to infect your USB (the same process as Panda USB Vaccine except it (Panda) doesn't reformat the USB). Overall, I recommend its Protect option, but not as a USB AV. I'd place my bet on USB Guardian for that.

    I didn't get the chance to try it since Avast blocked it.

    According to Avast, its a malicious program.

    Summary

    If its a virus then, why is this download still here?
