How can I disable the auto mount of usb/firewire devices or basically any external disk in MacOSX?
My motivation for this is that in Windows there have been possible attacks via USB trojans that would copy to the internal hard drive just after the auto mount. I thought that disabling auto mount of external devices is a good counter measure. But I'm be open to solutions that protect from such a threat using other methods.
I assume that a solution to my problem would have to look like the following:
- Auto mount disabled for all devices.
- Opt-in of auto mount for my private devices.
