may I remind you that in order to mount an encrypted usb drive you need to know the password. Now why would you mount your encrypted usb into a sys that you don not trust. You don't do it! The problem is not that the thumbs are saved. Who cares about it when the sys knows your pass, that's the last of your worries.

YOU DO NOT MOUNT/OPEN ENCRYPTED DATA INTO AN UNTRUSTED SYSTEM. same concept goes for the webemail.
