  1. October 22, 2008 ( SanDisk Corp. has stepped up its efforts to convince corporate users that USB sticks are a secure medium, adding built-in antivirus capability to its latest Cruzer drive.

    Any files copied or saved to the latest Cruzer Enterprise USB drive will automatically be scanned by a McAfee heuristics algorithm and antivirus engine that loads every time the drive is used. If it detects infected files being copied from a PC, all further transfers will be disallowed form that machine, stopping their spread.

    I've seen this bloatware before. The simple fact is any anti-virus worth it's salt will stop that in the first place. So it's redundant and unnecessary. I for one, remove all U3 technology from any flash drive I buy. In addition, many government agencies also require removal.
