In Pictures: 10 surreal moments in infosec history

A look at moments in infosec history that left us dumbfounded.

Obama's flat-footed response to Stuxnet leak When Iranian nuke facilities were attacked by the infamous Stuxnet malware in 2010, many assumed it was the work of the U.S., Israel or both.

Last year, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced a criminal probe shortly after a lengthy article by The New York Times' chief Washington correspondent David Sanger reported that anonymous, high-level sources in the Obama administration had told him that the U.S. and Israeli governments had indeed used the Stuxnet worm to attack centrifuges at Iran's Natanz nuclear plant.

This made the Obama Administration appear flat footed and not in control of classified information related to U.S. cybersecurity efforts. Critics also lashed the administration for trying to crush freedom of the press.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
