Promiscuous pluggers beware

Don't plug your USB drive in an unknown port! Not only could you get (or give) cooties, but Schneier on Security writes about software out in the wild that allows the covert copying of everything on your drive. Not a good thing for those who carry their lives on their USB drives and plug them into untrusted PCs in internet cafes, at conferences, at hotel business centres and the like.
