Security firm Malwarebytes has designed a USB stick that can plug into any PC to automate the process of finding, logging, and cleaning up a range of malware. Called Techbench, the product is a key-shaped USB flash drive designed to get around the need to install software on every system being inspected for malware. Simply plugging in the drive starts the scanning process which can be left to complete on its own before a log file is saved. Handy for business, the drive can be moved from PC to PC, saving the results for each in a separate folder. Quarantined files are saved on the drive itself. If necessary, Techbench can work in an automated mode to clean up and reboot a system without an administrator having to be present.
