WAS - Wait A Sec: Automatic USB drive malware scanning tool for the security-minded person.
How many times have you plugged in a USB drive and double clicked on a file without scanning for malware? I guess, MANY.

You may have an antivirus with realtime protection, but if it doesn't have the signatures for a new virus it's very possible that it will be unnoticed and even heuristic scan may fail in detecting a new virus.
