Feature useable to users as well as Virus writter

I have always maintained this autorun feature is a questionable design feature and asking for trouble and now has been used to attack NASA's space station.

Sure you can get the Anti-Virus to scan it before launching it but why tempt fate.

A convenient feature to a users will be of equally convenient to Virus/Trojan attackers.

Turn it off.
