image Thanks to Network World for inserting a link in the middle of Dave Kearn’s article, leading to an intriguing slide show, “10 Worst Moments in Network Security.”

Ranging from

“Digital Equipment Corp. marketing guy Gary Thuerk gets technical assistance to send what’s regarded as the first ‘spam’ message to thousands on the government-funded Arpanet”

to

“Societe Generale, the large French financial services firm, discloses that one of its low-level options traders, Jerome Kerviel, has committed stock fraud worth an astonishing $7 billion, the largest in history traced to rogue trading.”

this slide show provides a somewhat nostalgic, but provocative view of bad stuff happening out there in cyberspace.
