Hi All, I want to deploy a script which will disable all usb storage devices. I have the commands but want to deploy it via apple script so that it can't be edit or modified after deployment.


cp /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext ~/backup/

sudo srm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

sudo reboot


Thanks in advance

You can wrap UNIX commands in Applescript by using:


do shell script "YOUR_COMMAND"
