shell prompt. Worst of all, you notice that your stick is already mounted
read/write! This is on an unknown system that you know nothing about.

so you want security and you use an unknown system? on the beginning,
use a sd card with write tab locked, then be aware you expose all your
files to copy...

There is another point: some organizations dissable USB entirely on their computers, so that people can not copy files to a stick and "steal" them.

An alternative for them would be to forbide automounting system-wide, so that only root can mount any stick.
