DARPA's hacking box disguised as a power strip

http://j.mp/SO8uWk  (Wired)

  "It may look like a surge protector, but it's really a remote access
   machine that corporations can use to test security and log into branch
   offices. Called the Power Pwn, it's a stealthier version of the little
   box that can hack your network we wrote about last March.  Hidden
   inside are Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters, along with a number of
   hacking and remote access tools that let security experts prod and
   poke the network, and even call home to be remotely controlled via the
   cellular network."
