If you are prompted for your password without having started an installation or anything else, you should be really weary and avoid entering your password...

I would suggest antivirus because of your windows friends with no antivirus you can help them spread viruses, but with installed antivirus you can prevent. I have on my mac antivirus and I get many times notice for viruses on usb drives which came from windows users.
Sophos Antivirus for Mac is free or F secure which cost around $30 are just few of them.
