A company's network was penetrated today β€” the attacker sprayed perfume into the ventilation system and waited for the system administrator to vacate the premises, thus gaining access to the server room.

Experts say this may be the first "side-chanel" attack in recorded history.

@fasterthanlime @technomancy other sources claim it was at least the fifth attack of the kind

@fasterthanlime sounds a bit like the unix worm that changed all file permissions to (setuid, u+a, g=x, o=x). Those boxes were truly col-OWN-ed

Damn... These network punnytrations are clearly on the rise.
