Thanks for the info.
Before it happened I was downloading a file from a fairly reputable organization via WiFi. So, the problem wasn't caused by a usb issue. I've downloaded files from there before without any problems.
I'm concerned the problem was cause at the local level (at the WiFi router in my apartment).
