All Stuck Up

Avid readers (both of them :-( ) may recall the story I commented on a few days or so ago about a penetration test involving the planting of 20 USB memory sticks around a corporate headquarters. The objective was to get a Trojan implanted into the corporate network by using employee’s curiosity to see what was on the USB stick. Things have now gone further.

According to this report the proliferation of portable memory devices such as iPods is driving network managers crazy, to the extent that one company resorted to gluing the USB port up to prevent portable devices being plugged in.

Maybe DELL should sell a tube of glue as an optional add on for each new PC they sell.
