Who needs ifconfig with windows?
any user who can open a cmd session can run IPCONFIG /ALL

The same can be queried remotely using WMI

That depends... what do you mean by untrusted media?
Many OSes, even certain versions of Linux that support Firewire can be
coerced into running arbitrary code, by plugging in a malicious
firewire device,  unless there is an IOMMU or other measures
protecting against malicious memory access when a DMA is requested

Various hardware devices, and drivers have vulnerabilities, even
without 'autoplay'.
And some *ix distros do support 'autoplay-like' functionality.
