USB dongle auto malware scanning with clamav

Just read about this on Extreme Security. The idea is that it scans your USB drive whenever you plug it into a machine. Could be useful for anyone that plugs their pendrive into a lot of insecure machines and needs to check it regularly, but it might get annoying if you only use your drive in a few machines. I'll probably just keep mine as an on-demand check from the app itself, but it's an interesting idea. The scripting didn't quite work when I tried it, but I'm sure I can get it going nicely on my key with some tweaking. It's probably just Vista being awkward.
