Between you, me and that dodgy-looking USB: A little bit of paranoia never hurt anyone

Problem is basic design of USB, particularly HID which can inject scripts without storage mount.

Also stupidity of JTAG over USB management modes on some motherboards. ONLY use a JTAG header.

Also there are other non-storage USB modes that might be used as attack vectors.
