Autorun.inf in computer

Hey guys, I was making a virus for testing. So I made a shutdown.bat virus and made a autorun.inf file and connect my shutdown.bat into this file autorun.inf, so now my question is. Did this autorun.inf works automatically? I mean if I plug my USB drive which contains this stuff and didn't open it. So did this thing works without opening USB drive? And shutdown my computer? Or the antivirus show this USB drive has a virus and stop this file running?


Software/Hardware used:
shutdown.bat virus only works in windows or it can be work on ubantu or kali, linux based os?

    It depends on how the computer is configured. A lot will have autorun disable on removable media devices to prevent such an issue.

    We have no way to know with any certainty if it'll "work" or not. We'll need to know details of the USB device, details of the system that mounts the device and details of the content of the USB. Then we might be able to guess.

    Most likely, the answer is "No, it won't work."

    Ten years ago, it would have been more likely to work. In recent years, USB mounting has changed primarily to stop the behavior you're asking about.

    Consider it security flaw that Microsoft patched and will no longer work. IT was a blatant risk that should never have happened in the first place. That is similar to them getting rid of floppy disk drive. They were a risk, but nowadays their storage capacity seem like a joke. a 3 1/2 inch floppy could hold a whopping 1.44meg and the 5 1/4 could hold 1.2meg. In today's world that is not even one digital image from a cheap camera.

    If you really want to know if it works, try it on your own computer. If all it's doing is shutting it down, no harm. I still bet it won't work.

    Of course I am testing on my computer. I'm just exploring this just for academic purposes and so was wondering if it was even possible to unlock it in the windows.

    If the testing computer has anti virus then it detects the usb as virus affected while you stores the contains in usb.
