What Are the Dangers of Using an Untrusted USB Drive?

What Are the Dangers of Using an Untrusted USB Drive? | MyWeb4Ed | Scoop.it
USB keys, pen drives, memory sticks--they're not necessarily as harmless as you might think. Before you insert one that you don't 100% trust, think about what might go wrong (hint: a lot). The Super Users at Stack Exchange list a few very realistic USB nightmare scenarios.
Carol Mortensens insight:

I think educators are the worst at trusting when someone hands out a free USB stick.....it's such a common practice and makes us more vulnerable because we don't think twice about accepting it and using it!

Signed up for DreamHost to move MyWeb4Ed to them as I'm not very happy with my current domain holder,  iPage.  Their service is really lacking!  This is a really great deal with the LifeHacker code (thought it's 1 free domain, not two! )  Recommend giving them a try and they were voted most popular!
