[Wired] The Little White Box That Can Hack Your Network

Built by a startup company called Pwnie Express, the PwnPlug is pretty much the last thing you ever want to find on your network — unless you’ve hired somebody to put it there. It’s a tiny computer that comes preloaded with an arsenal of hacking tools. It can be quickly plugged into any computer network and then used to access it remotely from afar. And it comes with “stealthy decal stickers” — including a little green flowerbud with the word “fresh” underneath it, that makes the device look like an air freshener — so that people won’t get suspicious.

WOE!

Definitely want to be aware of this nasty little box, it could jeopardize your entire network!

Eh, you might as well forget about this thing for $480 and just buy the SheevaPlug that they mention for $99.

Well yeah, but a SheevaPlug though isn't for remote hacking...

I posted this to make people aware that these things are extremely dangerous to your networks, that is if you have one..

From the article:

The basic model costs $480, but if you’re willing to pay an extra $250 for the Elite version, you can connect it over the mobile wireless network.

There was something similar posted here a year or so back, turned out to be a hoax, guess someone ran with the idea.
