What do you do if you find a lost USB flash drive?
StillADotcommer 1 year ago
I ask this from the perspective of someone who has seen the effects of what others have done when they found a lost flash drive. At my company, I have had three different people who, over the past couple of months, found lost flash drives outside of the office, plugged them in and got a nice gift of malware. I'm sure that other employees have done the same thing without suffering ill effects, but of course I have no way of knowing how often this happens except when it causes problems. Have you ever faced this from the finder perspective, and if so what did you do?
