Autorun Worm is like that sneaky party crasher who slips in unnoticed, wreaking havoc once inside. This cunning digital pest spreads by exploiting the “autorun” feature found in many devices, hitching a ride on your files and spreading itself without you even knowing. Think of it as a master of disguise, hiding in plain sight while it multiplies and causes trouble.They usually sneak in through USB drives and spring into action when plugged into a PC. Remember that notorious Conficker worm? Yup, it used AutoPlay, a similar tech. But no worries, Microsoft’s got our backs by turning off AutoRun on new systems. So, fingers crossed, these pesky worms will be history soon!
