Battery energy drink - Breakfast of champions Posted by Mikko @ 11:41 GMT

Our security labs were profiled in a feature in a local Finnish weekly publication last week.

The story mentioned that during late-night outbreaks we tend to drink lots of Battery, an energy drink.

Then yesterday, to our surprise, a courier delivered us a pallet of Battery. The shipment included a Thank You note from the marketing team at Sinebrychoff, the company behind the drink - apparently they had read the article too. Hey, nice! The drinks will be needed during the weekend if the Warezov virus situation continues as bad as it has been for the past few days.


So… is it really this easy to get free stuff via product endorsements?

If so, we would really like to play around with Nintendo(tm) Wii(tm) game consoles when we're not busy fighting viruses and our shipping address is F-Secure Labs, PL 24, 00181 Helsinki, Finland. Thanks a lot.
