Pandora's Box was introduced in the myth about Pandora. She was not supposed to open the box, but curiosity got the best of her. She opened the box and out flew all the evils, luckily she slammed it shut again before the last evil flew out and destroyed hope.

From this story, the term Pandora's Box has come to represent something that holds or releases evil. Opening Pandora's Box implies creating serious trouble.
