I know it’s probably not got malware on it but it’s good to check and a decent skill to learn. How would you prepare a flash pen for safe use on Linux? Would just reformatting it in a VM do? Edit 1: My post seems pretty popular so I thought I would update it. So far nothing looks amiss. The company is pretty reputable anyway. I’m going to try more stuff just as a learning experience.
