so that is a non-issue if it does no harm.

this should depend on how you configured your wm/de. I've never seen
any cd autorun by default on my desktop.
As I see it, most WMs don't autorun cds by default.
KDE can autorun cds, but by default it asks if it should autorun the cd, IIRC.
Of course some others may autorun cds by default, I have no idea, but
even in that case, it is the users responsibility what he sticks in
his cd drive. If he legally buys his cds there should be no virus on
it. Sure you can get a virus on a usb stick or so, but much depends
what you do with these devices.
