U3 on Linux

A U3 drive will show up as two devices, both a CD drive and a hard drive (of sorts).

As far as I'm aware there are no auto-mounting daemons that actually pay any attention to windows auto run files (I think Linux developers are a little smarter then that) and other systems not having any auto mounting at all.

In what way did you password it?

wine just has to be able to read the file to run it (so executable permission is not essential).

This is where wine's security falls down. Really, wine should check for executablity. If it did that, a user who was the target of "Click here for FREE XXX" trojan would have to actually set the exe they downloaded to +x (unless they received a tar that maintains fs permissions).

I passworded through the U3 application on a windows machine. I mainly use it on windows machines at school so I wanted a password on it. I only run Linux at home so I cannot access it. I have tried running the U3 application through Wine and Crossover, both failed to load it.

If your brave you can try the following app:

u3-tool. sourceforge. net

Should be able to unlock your device, Although it still takes some effort to get it working.

Very nice! I just compiled it.

u3_tool 0.1
U3 USB stick manager

Usage: ./u3_tool_sg [options] <device name>

Options:
        -c                Change password
        -d                Disable device security
        -D                Dump all raw info(for debug)
        -e                Enable device security
        -h                Print this help message
        -i                Display device info
        -l <cd image>     Load CD image into device
        -p <cd size>      Repartition device
        -u                Unlock device
        -v                Use verbose output
        -V                Print version information

The device name depends on the used subsystem.
Examples: '/dev/sda0'(sg), 'scan'(USB),'vid:pid'(USB), 'e'(Windows)

Ultra thanks for your suggestion.
