Back in April we talked about the Windows 7 improvements in AutoPlay that disables certain functionality which has been abused by malware (like Conficker). We also mentioned that these changes will be backported to down level platforms. On August 25th this functionality was made available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, please visit the following KB article for more information and how to download the updates http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971029
Thanks to Dave Midturi (from MSRC) and Ugo Enyioha (from Windows Sustained Engineering team) for helping on this work.
