Using trusted USB drives that you own on your up to date, well-secured operating system is one thing, but what if your best friend stops by with their USB drive and wants you to copy some files to it? Does your friend’s USB drive pose any risks to your well-secured system, or is it just baseless fear?

Woohoo! Another use for my Raspberry Pi. Absolutely nothing of value on it yet since I'm using it to learn more about Linux and be comfortable in the command line, so if I totally corrupt it I just re-flash a new image onto the SD card

Hi, One could use panda usbvaccine from panda research team to prevent attacks on pendrive and computer. It has two protections, one for computer and one for pen drive. It injects auto.inf file and provide computer protection as well as pen drive protection. I have tested many tools and found this one as a major reliever of pen drive attacks. It has an option to inject the vaccine whenever an unknown pendrive is inserted and you could click that option. Even though if a pen drive is infected, you could view the files in the pen drive and choose to delete
It could be downloaded safely from Majorgeek.com
