  1. I have a 5 star rating and I've been here awhile, may I be considered?
  2. I really wouldn't mind paying the fee. The downside is that hardly anybody posts in the SE forums anyway, so I couldn't see myself getting my money's worth. Because I know jack about hacking, and I'll admit that.
  3. I began learning independently, buying books and coding my own programs. Then I realized that hacking the human mind comes naturally to me, so now I am in constant training to improve my social engineering skills.
  4. http://www.newsweek.com/id/91688 Does this mean Derren Brown is a robot?
  5. That's pretty decent. Where did you find/hear about it?
  6. I need a car that won't break down on me, nothing fancy, just something that will get me from point A to point B. That if I could go back in time I would have put 5,000 dollars into the CMKX stock, 400 dollars was equivalent to a million shares 2 years ago, but then they found just about every useful natural resource on the land the they purchased. The large trading company higher-ups are retiring because they are going to have to go back into the market to buy it at it's appreciated value or else they go to jail for a roughly 10 years. Penny Stocks into Dollar Shares.
  7. Quit getting drunk and having conversations about people's mothers and you'll have much less hospital trips. Any ideas for the next meeting? Something without blue tooth maybe?
  8. There will always be vulnerabilities as long as new software comes out. Like Ohm said, it's an arms race. No one is losing, no one is winning. But as the security field develops, it will become less about the hardware and software and more about the human element. They say "There's no patch for human stupidity" for a reason.
  9. I know how you feel, I was supposed to go, but then I realized that Metra by my house doesn't run on Saturdays. Also my best friend bailed out.
  10. Security through obscurity is like having locks on all of the doors and windows on the 1st story of a warehouse, but then leaving the doors on the roof unlocked. People just tend to think "well, nobody will do that". This is usually effective, until somebody finds the unlocked door.
  11. Phreaknic sounnds extremely appealing to me. It's only in Tennessee, and its a lot cheaper than Defcon. It sounds like a fun time.
  12. Does anyone have an idea of the meeting time so I can plan my day accordingly?
  13. Nice pics, and for a cellphone nonetheless. I will never get over how bad ass Mitnick's calling card is.
  14. Somewhere in Millennium Park? War-train, anybody?
  15. Ah, that is true. But really only for things like Lock-picking. You can't really teach SE, and I don't know anyone who was really "trained" to hack things. Mentored, yes, but not trained. That is where the discussions and presentations come in handy.
  16. Either that or you might want to check Device Manager and make sure it set to allow things to run off those ports.
  17. An NBC producer gets caught at DefCon with a hidden camera, defying legal agreements. Article here.
  18. I personally, have come to enjoy the fact that roughly 95% of the population is composed of sheep. Sheep have their uses. They get herded around without question or reason, they harvested to make our lives better. If the majority of the population wasn't unconscious, we wouldn't have the wonderful art of social engineering.
  19. The sad fact is that very few people are willingly to actually go to seek out the truth, because that would mean effort. Instead they just believe everything the media spoon feeds them. "Hackers are evil, they read my email and give me viruses." No, I don't read your email and no I don't give you viruses. You aren't interesting. As hackers, we have a right to assemble, a right to keep out whoever we want, and a right to make fun of you for being sheeple.
  20. I don't feel bad for her. She violated agreements. The WORST part is the she underestimated some of the greatest hackers alive. Taking us for fools by not even making it secret that you are going to DefCon undercover, registering under your real name, and not even trying to disguise yourself. Stupid.
  21. Because if there is any group of people you definitely don't want to mess with, its real hackers. Oh, and fundamental Islamics. Oh, and North Korea. Oh, and Columbian Drug Lords. Oh, and Chuck Norris.
  22. Need I remind everyone of the spectacular failure of the Gizmondo? Discount price if you feel like listening to the ads.
  23. The only real things you need are intelligent speakers, food and drink, and a place to hangout and talk to like-minded individuals. The rest is just filler, (don't get me wrong, it's awesome filler) but as long as you have those three things, you're set.
  24. Don't forget the colors!
