Ouch. Egg on face to the max.

A clever PR person would switch that around and highlight the fact that nothing should be trusted.

You would expect this to be the one place where everyone would scan stuff for viruses.

LOL!

Seriously, that takes some doing

Handing out malware (in the form of freebies) at a security convention is pretty epic

Never trust anything! Either someone at IBM had alot of time on their hands or the USB sticks were pre planted with the virus.

Anyone in the security industry who uses windows shouldn't have been there in the first place.
And they should also know about this type of thing... my 13 year old cousin could set up a usb hacksaw with about 100 worms, trojans and viruses on it ...

It could have been a stunt, demonstrating the weakness of "free" computer peripherals?

It was probably a cock up, but hey.
