Items like external hard drives and USB drives are still a popular means of storing and sharing data. They’re also a popular means of spreading malicious content.
Avoid plugging an unfamiliar external drive into your computer, even one given to you by a coworker. If you can’t verify where the drive came from or what type of content it contains, you could be putting the entire network at risk of an infection.
Keep in mind that devices such as smartphones can also be used to infect a computer system, and avoid plugging any potentially unsafe device into your computer.
