@david25272, even looking at a directory listing could be a risk.

comment What is the danger of inserting and browsing an untrusted USB drive?
@EM, there was a zero-day exploit a while ago that took advantage of a vulnerability in how the icon was displayed in a shortcut file (.lnk file). Just opening the folder containing the shortcut file is enough to trigger the exploit code. A hacker could have easily put such a file on the root of the USB drive so when you open it, the exploit code would run.
