The answer provided to this question by forest has a good summary explaining the types of attacks that a malicious USB can do.

Does USB redirection in a VM provide any protection against any of these attack vectors (e.g. confining an exploit in USB class drivers or filesystem drivers to the VM)?

I use KVM/QEMU USB redirection and auto-mounting is disabled on the host OS.
