Hi Strain stive,

Yes you can block USB Pen Drive in Linux PC. Just in few steps:

First of all you need to disable USB storage devices in Susi Linux and Debian Linux. Type the following command:

# echo 'install usb-storage : ' >> /etc/modprobe.conf

You can also remove USB Storage driver, enter:

# ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko
# mv /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko /root

I hope it will helpful. Thanks!
