I'd remove the other users from the group that has rights to the pendrive, you'll need usermod for that...

Only the root would be member of that group...

Alternatively, you may have to chmod the access so only the root can get to it...

Luck

It should be called "USB" or something...but, now I'm somewhat puzzled...if you dont have access to that info, do you have system rights to change anything? If so, maybe a read-up would give more info...

Luck

Edit : use this link...
