In Pictures: The nastiest cyber security stink-bombs of 2013 (so far)

From online bank heists to Chinese hackers, 2013 is adding up to be a security mess

The suspected China-based hackers known as the "Comment Crew" were back at it again in June, a development likely to contribute to continued tensions between the U.S. and China over cyber-attacks. The security community has had the group under its watch for a number of years, but in February, its activity was exhaustively detailed in a report from computer security vendor Mandiant. Mandiant's report said a specific Chinese military unit called "61398" waged a seven-year hacking spree that compromised 141 organizations. The report added to other long-running research from security companies and organizations into suspected state-sponsored hacking. Mandiant Founder & CEO Kevin Mandia (L) and Mandiant CSO Richard Bejtlich (C) participate in the Reuters Cyber security Summit in Washington May 13, 2013.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
