    Tell me if I'm crazy.

    I was looking through my registry and found these:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Access-Treiber (*.mdb)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft dBase-Treiber (*.dbf)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Excel-Treiber (*.xls)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Paradox-Treiber (*.db )
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Microsoft Text-Treiber (*.txt; *.csv)

    ODBC stands for Open Database Connectivity (something I don't want), and Amam Treiber is an attorney who has worked as a software engineer in the aerospace and defense industries around the Washington, D.C., area. (http://www.bakerlaw.com/adammtreiber) He has also worked for BBN Laboratories, Inc., Space Applications Corp., AHA Research Inc., Orbital Sciences Corp. He also has a M.S.E.E in Network & Communications from the George Washington University as well 3 other degrees. (http://www.linkedin.com/in/atreiber)

    And that's what he does by day.. (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/adam-treiber/7/184/a1)

    Anyone have idea how to defend against this?
