    Revision Note: V2.0 (February 8, 2011): Summary and update FAQ revised to notify users that the 971029 update to Autorun that restricts AutoPlay functionality to CD and DVD media will be offered via automatic updating. Advisory Summary:Microsoft is announcing the availability of updates to the Autorun feature that help to restrict AutoPlay functionality to only CD and DVD media on supported editions of Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008. Restricting AutoPlay functionality to only CD and DVD media can help protect customers from attack vectors that involve the execution of arbitrary code by Autorun when inserting a USB flash drive, network shares, or other non-CD and non-DVD media containing a file system with an Autorun.inf file.
