Hi I'm the upstream maintainer. No need to get trigger-happy. There is a 4-line fix to this, specifically add the QFileDialog::ReadOnly option to the 4 occurrences of QFileDialog::getOpenFileName in https://github.com/gkovacs/unetbootin/blob/master/src/unetbootin/unetbootin.cpp . I'll update it soon. Thanks!

Issue is fixed in the latest 613 release https://launchpad.net/unetbootin/trunk/613 (not yet on sourceforge, as sourceforge's infrastructure is still down) and can be seen in the PPA at https://launchpad.net/~gezakovacs/+archive/ubuntu/ppa . The relevant commit is https://github.com/gkovacs/unetbootin/commit/9dafdda9ad6765d27c62df52daa708db22835e3e if you would like to cherry-pick it.
