When it comes to computer security, sometimes it's good to know what it is that you're trying to protect yourself from. In this video, I'm going to cover the AutoRun feature in Windows and why, for security reasons, you should never use it. To prove my point, I'm going to show you how to make a USB drive that exploits the autorun feature to automatically download and save a users information just by plugging it into a USB port.

Step 1: Material List

To do this project, you are going to need:
- U3 usb drive, such as a sandisk cruizer,
- Access to a Windows XP machine.

What makes a U3 usb drive unique is that it emulates a CD rom drive so that it can autorun it's "launchpad" whenever you plug it into your computer. This is useful because Windows will not allow programs to autorun straight from a USB drive, but it will allow programs to autorun from CD drives and since a U3 usb drive shows up as both, we can use this feature to autorun our USB drive.
can you simply do this on a CD instead?
<p>Ya, i think so</p>
<p>hi !</p><p>i have a couple of questions:</p><p>why do some hacking files like WebBrowserNetView,ChromPass,PasswordFox</p><p>are saving as a .cfg file and others save as.html like operapass...etc.</p><p>how can i fix this problem ?</p><p>hope anyone replies.</p><p>Thank you .</p>
<p>hy bro i make that all files which done all the process which u want within 10 second u can stole all passwords of a computer like all browsers password which save init.and also stole each wifi password which that computer ur laptop connected if u want that file so cntct..... www.facebook.com/shahrox.xhan.2 </p>
<p>some of this stuff cannot be done because of the Antivirus!<br>any option to do so?</p>
<p>Where can i find this the software now?</p><p>It seems the site u3community has been abandoned.</p>
<p>The U3 download link does not seem to work.</p>
how to you make it save the passwords in a text document<br>
does it work on windows 7
Can a usb, when plugged in, shut down(but remember everything) all activated processes except the OS processes (just like safe mode) and when you pull it out restore everything to the situation before you plugged in the usb? That would be a real secure usb drive..
auto run no longer works for flash drives in windows 7
Norton trashed the Password Fox exe and yelled at me that it was a virus..
ahahaha, it might be eh
um.......... i think your link u3community.com isnt working for me
Glad I do not use Microsoft Windows software.
What do you use?
Actually I do have a token xp box. Mostly use open source operating systems such as various linuxes, bsd and other os's.
Go Linux! But I have a mac. Well atleast macs cant do this instructable
I ran osx for a while on some ppc g3's till I converted them to linux. I eventually dumped those machines. On linux there is wine and and there is a corresponding open source program on mac, but I forget he name. Not sure whether you could get hose programs to work though.
Yeah to use the windows apps on linux and mac I have linux on my brothers computer with wine

This is neat. Any chance there will be a Vista/7 version soon?
This works on Vista/7. You just have to initially set it up using XP because the Unverisial software only runs on XP.
Oh, OK. I have an XP machine.
