Intego is a Mac security software company founded in 1997.
wysiwyg image

They create backup, antivirus, antispam, data protection software, firewall for MAC OS X.
Now lets get back to our discussion
This threat is a dropper which creates a backdoor when it's run.
It installs silently, without requiring a password only in OSX 10.6,10.7 and Snow Leopard and Lion.
If the dropper runs on a system with Admin permissions it will drop a rootkit to hide itself.
With or Without Admin permissions this folder is created in the infected user's home:
only with Admin permissions,
A new folder will be created.
It uses low level system calls to hide its activities

Protect your Pendrive from Autorun.inf

It can be done in two methods 
By Manual
By Third party software
Will tell you both now.

By Manual:

1) Open a command prompt by click Start -> Run. Type cmd and hit the Enter key.

2) In the command prompt, create a directory in the root directory of the USB drive:
           mkdir AutoRun.ini

3) Move into this new directory with command: 
cd AutoRun.ini

4) Create a new directory with command:
mkdir a

5) Exit the command prompt window with command:

Remove the USB-Disk from the computer and now its immune. And whenever you will plug it into a infected computer the USB won't get infected.

By Third party software:
Bitdefender USB Immunizer
The USB immunizer is BitDefender's response to this growing issue. This small utility is divided in two sections.

The Immunize option allows you to immunize your USB storage device or SD card against infections with autorun-based malware. Even if your storage device has been plugged into an infected computer, the piece of malware will be unable to create its autorun.inf file, thus annihilating any chance of auto-launching itself.
