comment Which ports are considered unsafe on Chrome
Usually, though its possible for a ssl encrypted site to install malware on your pc, the https just means it'll do so securely. It's not a designation of the traffic being safe. It's a designation of the traffic being secure. It could also be an invalid ssl certificate, but that'll give warnings in your browser. The short answer is nothing is truly safe, unless you know the sender of the information, and know the channel is private.

comment unknown filesystem grub rescue ubuntu
there's plenty of linux live distros that'll fit into a fraction of that and boot right off a usb stick. I'm also assuming they installed linux from one in the first place, given that most distros are installed from such these days. Also no information in the original question that windows even still boots - given that grub is borked.

comment Lipstick in USB; Ideas about how to remove it?
use a pin / needle and scrape it out carefully. as long as you get electrical contact on the pins once inserted you should be fine.
