Brian Contos, CTO of ArcSight Inc. and author of Enemy at the Water Cooler
showed us this video during a presentation he gave last week on the
convergence of physical and logical security. I laughed so hard I just had
to share it with you.

In this three-minute video, a couple of Australian TV personalities show
how they built an actual, Iliad-sized Trojan horse and filled it with
several Greek soldiers. They then put it on a trailer and tried to get it
through the gates of several "secure" locations, with hilarious results.

If you can stop laughing long enough, you may take a lesson from this:
Sometimes, the most obvious attack vectors are the most likely to be
overlooked.
