images/news/ibm.jpgYou'd think IBM would've been extra careful when handing out complimentary USB sticks at a computer security expo in Australia. But noooo. According to IBM, "some of these USB keys contained malware," with all sticks suspected to be affected.

Oh, the irony. As IBM took to the stage, lecturing in the importance of protecting PCs against viruses, their worker-bees (BTW, where is that Chriso) were busy dishing out USB sticks laden with malware to the assembled industry bods at the AusCERT conference.
