Really, Verisign?

Verisign's latest snail mail spam included a Verisign-branded USB drive with information on their new SSL Certificate features. The package was heavily loaded with all kinds of "Trust" rhetoric. At the request of the guy who officially got it, I threw it into my Macbook to take a look at it. It wasn't on any network and it's not prone to any known vulnerabilities that might allow something to run directly from the USB without any interaction (unlike Windows)

Really, Verisign? REALLY?

Autorun, Verisign? Really? AND Lame Adobe Flash? You honestly expect us to TRUST this kind of crap? To add insult to injury, the USB drive itself is only 64MB. You can't even install BackTrack on it or otherwise put it to any productive use.
