  Disable USB Autorun and Upgrade Antivirus Software
  Notice Number: 05/2009

There are several malicious applications or computer viruses spreading onto computers through the autorun functionality of USB devices. CSC is planned to change the Group Policy to disable such Windows autorun capabilities next Wednesday (Feb. 18). All computers which have joined the Windows AD will be affected.

In addition, computers that are equipped with Symantec Endpoint Security 11.0 will be upgraded to the latest 11.0 MR4 (maintenance release) version. For more information, please refer to this webpage.

If you have any enquiry regarding the information above, please feel free to contact Mr. Kenny Io (Tel: 8599-6248) or Mr. Voyage Io (Tel: 8599-6175), or send email to

目前有許多惡意程式或電腦病毒會透過USB 裝置自動執行程式 (Autorun) 來進行散播,爲此,資訊中心將於下星期三 (2月18日)透過修改網域設定群組原則(Group Policy) 以關閉作業系統中裝置自動執行功能。所有已連上Windows AD的電腦將受到影響。

此外,所有已安裝有 Symantec Endpoint Security 11.0 的電腦亦將會自動更新至最新的11.0 MR4維護版本。詳情請參閱此網頁
