    On a forum where Autorun was mentioned as a way to spread certain malware, there was replied that it's not effective as in Win7+ it's disabled by default and lower versions got it disabled through Windows update. Then there is a quote from a PCmag article:

    Does anyone have more info?

    You may not have noticed (as it's not very easy to see) but that article is from 2011.

    Ah yes, but depending on whether or not MS sees it as a vulnerability, it might still be relevant..
