Pwnie Express Releases Pwn Pad Ahead of Schedule 24

Posted by samzenpus

An anonymous reader writes "The team at Pwnie Express released their Pwn Plug, which combined an off the shelf SheevaPlug with a feature packed open source firmware that turned it into an incredibly capable security tool. Then came the Power Pwn, which hid the same type of functionality into what looked like a standard power strip. Today they've launched their latest product, continuing along the same line of hiding cutting edge open source security tools in plain sight: the Pwn Pad."

    the same type of functionality into what looked like a standard power strip

    A few years ago, I remember a story on slashdot about how a con-man swindled some investors who thought they were supporting the development of a high performance broadband wireless technology. Demonstrations were arranged where data transmission occurred across a bay or some other body of water. When the scam was uncovered, it was discovered that a coax cable was disguised as a power plug and used to fake the data transmission. I have not been able to rediscover the story or anything similar to it. Do any old timers here remember any such caper?

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
