Hacking device to go

Woah, scary. At this year’s RSA security conference, Immunity Inc. introduced their new portable penetration attack device Silica. Silica, as summarized by ZDNet’s Ryan Naraine, is able to

search for and join 802.11 (Wi-Fi) access points, scan other connections for open ports, and automatically launch code execution exploits from a built-in exploit platform.

For $3.600, you can just walk into any office and, with minimal technological knowledge or skills, have Silica download all the data that’s not perfectly secure. And all that via a neat 3 button interface. Neat. Scary, but neat. (Or maybe the other way round.) Link
