The increased usage of removable media brings with it the threat of malicious code profileration via those devices. As this represents a serious risk to computer security, the options for removable media protection were tightened and the option to block removable media was added.
The Removable media setup window allows you to select devices for which you want to increase security.
The following options are available for selected devices:
- Block removable media - Select this option to activate blocking of removable media. The list of blocked media at the top of the Allowed removable media setup window can be modified only if this option is enabled.
- Enable advanced heuristics when executing files from removable media – Enable this option to use advanced heuristics to scan files executed from removable media
