    G Data has developed a program that they claim protects your PC from "BadUSB."

    "Antivirus solutions have so far been powerless against such attacks, so G DATA has responded by developing USB KEYBOARD GUARD, an add-on that protects you from the most likely form of USB attack - USB devices pretending to be keyboards. If a new keyboard is detected by the system, access is initially denied and a pop-up is displayed. You can then check in your own time whether this really is a keyboard, and either grant or deny access permanently."

    Has anyone installed this?

    It's a Free Download
