USB Immunizer – the new and improved

The second version of Bitdefender USB Immunizer, codename “Peeved Panda”, has been released today, boasting new features such as NTFS immunization, the ability to run continuously and an option to immunize fixed drives.

The new Immunizer is also a lot more talkative and tweakable. A pop-up will announce users that a newly-added removable media can be immunized; there are options to start at boot and to remain in systray.

As usual, the kit is available on the Bitdefender labs website, here. Because USB Immunizer is still experimental software and thus lacks an auto-update facility, existing users will need to install the new version manually.
