Yes an unsecure flash drive can corrupt a hard drive and even infect other computers connected to the network. If the flash drive is connected to any computer that is infected with malware it is very possible that the same flash drive will covertly corrupt other computers. I suggest you buy iron key or another encryted flash drive
