Dangerous Pod Slurping

Companies, switch of all USB ports on your PCs, Pod slurping is apparently thriving.

The analysts at Gartner warn companies from iPods being used by data thieves. For example a thieve disguised as a janitor could walk into a company wearing an iPod grooving to the music. When nobody is looking he connects the iPod to a PC and copies all the files he can get onto the portable device. Definitly dangerous, but why give it a funny name - Pod slurping.

In many places you anyway might not get through the metal detectors with an iPod anyway.
