Don't Plug That Flashdrive!

Imagine this scenario:

You find a flashdrive on your way to work.  Lucky day!  So upon reaching the office, you plug in the flashdrive to your computer and BAM! your computer is owned by a hacker!

This is an easy way of getting your system compromised and it is outlined at this blog.  What's so frightening about this is that the code written by its author, Jim Peterson, is that any script kiddie can do it easily!

So, who wants a free flashdrive?
