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.

again, Ummm......Does anyone see the humor in the fact that she tried a little Social Engineering to get into a Hackers conference. Yes she screwed it up but next year maybe she won't register under her own name. And maybe wear a wig.

I don't mean to be argumentative.. but sneaking in a camera, then getting caught doesn't constitute social engineering, imho.

was anybody from binrev there when she was outed?

I agree, those kinds of reporters are assholes, and she didnt know what was coming to her. I pity her because she's so stupid. But yeah it's a good thing she was outed or else the bitch would've made hackers look bad for everyone who believes the mainstream media and dont even know what hackers are.

btw I've never been to Defcon. Do they ID, or is she really THAT stupid?

PWN'T. Serves her right for breaking the agreement. I expect reporters to be a little shady, but this is rediculas. Either way, I'm curious to see what they're going to do with that episode of dateline. I'll be watching, that's for sure :-)

What about the mole that gave her away? Is no one else curious about who that could be?

Oh, and way to make the news, Jaku! Tis your 15 minutes of fame for the right side of your face...haha!

Does that mean the left side of my face gets 15 minutes of fame as well?

Actually I've gotten in a lot of other pictures about the whole thing as well, and am in pretty much every YouTube video. It was fun getting calls from friends telling me I was on wired, PCworld, and others.

http://amishrabbit.smugmug.com/gallery/3253654 <- lots more of Jaku picture goodness

Also I have some hidden undercover recon video of StankDawg that I took on Sunday. I'll post it up soon. :)

I didn't say she was good at it, after all she is blonde.. (Ha, I made the first blonde joke)

Maybe she reported to the wrong network? Or maybe because she was around

all those "hax0rs" her short term memory buffer overflowed and when she was

told to report to her network, she tried reporting to her cable internet provider?

EDIT: After seeing her myspace page, I have to say I can only hope she is just

TRYING to be this stereotypically girlie, because it is beyond disgusting.

Of course you won't hear anything about it on NBC. They're embarrased, they don't want anyone to know. But I highly doubt this was an isolated event. Dateline goes pretty hardcore. I bet they got someone into the CCC Camp, and probably a bunch of other cons.

BE ALERT FOR THIS SORT OF THING IN UPCOMING CONS! We should get a list of known undercover news associates and producers and send the lists to con administrations.

In fact, I wouldn't be suprised if they have people going in and pretending to be newbies on forums and chat sites. There is another topic (too lazy to find the link) in Binrev about the unussually high numbers of people asking for ways to hack myspace and photobucket and various other things. Just a thought...

I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

You're probably right, too; I know for a fact that a particular security agent of a certain unnamed company looks over the boards every so often.

Aw. I really want to see a news story on defcon. Like, what ever video she had would prolly be able to be overblown completely into complete bullshit on hackers.

Man, and I was just mentioning Dateline in another thread... Did someone mention Madigan was affiliated with DL?

I think I'm going mental.

By the way, nice of her to offer her birth date :/...

Look at the comments on that news piece, talk about a one-sided mind for the masses. I *actually* thought, in my childish and naive ways, that most people have gotten past that bullshit perception of the 'supreme evilz0r hackers', at least to some extent.

Yeah, right. <_<

I was actually wondering how much of that response was gender-based -- that is, if she weren't a she, but rather a he, would the response been the same type of response? It's my guess that the answer would be no... Which isn't to say that our country doesn't encourage the idea of victimhood overall, but it certainly applies it more thoroughly when they perceive that 'a girl's been hurt'. And yet I am sure they chose a girl to go 'undercover' because they believed it'd be easier to SE us into talking (and to get away with not telling the whole truth when she registered).

Look at some of these god damned comments.

me says:

why is a hacker convention even allowed? don't we arrest people that hack into computers? i bet those geeks aren't so tough when THEY'RE walking alone.

Rob says:

She was doing her job, not hurting anyone...regardless...the people "escorting her out" acted like jerks. Yes, some will say that some journalists and photographers act like jerks sometimes too. Will the reporters be more careful/smarter next time, sure they will. Taking a pic of the reporter and saying it's for those helpless predator's...please...Grow Up! The people making the comments sounded like high school goobers! Glad they got their 5 minutes of fame-idiots!

Yvonne says:

What a bunch of immature jerks chasing this woman. I be they don't have any girlfriends.

Judy says:

What a bunch of freaks and nerds. Huh Huh!!

Chris says:

I have a solution to the whole so called hacker problem....

Make stronger hacker laws...it's as easy as that...then hackers will think twice before they think about messing with anyone else again.

example:Put them in jail for twice as long.

These hackers have been getting away with to much lately..it's time to put an end this BS!

X_line says:

NERDS!!! OK.. 1) Who the hell chases away a good looking woman like that.. The only way they'd be interested in her is if she had a keyboard attached to her or was a part of Warcraft or some crap.. 2) Yes there is a negative spin on Hackers.. Gee.. Wonder why.. Just maybe if ya'll didn't try breaking into things you have no right to see.. Stealing personal information.. 3) If they had nothing to hide and weren't doing anything wrong or planning on doing something wrong then why where they so quick to get her out of there.. Hmm.. I'm no Rocket Scientist but last time I check people tend to freak out like that when they know they're caught.. If you're a "Hacker" and don't want us displayed in a negative light STOP DOING THINGS THAT ARE ILLEAGAL AND WRONG!! DUH!!!

Corie says:

She had every right to be there at the convention...and she is probably smarter than the a-- men who were there in attendance. Too bad the first two speakers were not as attractive as she is.....typical man!

rcfcc says:

I'm no rocket scientist, either, but doesn't it seem likely that by attending a "hackers" convention you might be getting on a few government lists? Isn't that kind of like having a Serial Killers Convention? I guess the feds know who to look at when someone's identity is stolen. Or, maybe this group is the hacker wanna-be's and don't really know how to do it (they're just frustrated computer geeks who want people to fear them). Either way, isn't this what the Patriot Act was invented for?

william says:

While they sounded like a bunch of goons who couldnt get laid in a whorehouse with a fistful of hundreds,what the difference between them chasing her or a group of newshounds chasing Britney,Lyndsey,or someone whose family was just killed all for the sake of a little air time

Ed the Great says:

The geeks' nervous Bevis & Butthead laughter toward the end of the video says it all. What pathetic losers. The geek will not inherit the earth. They will end up Whopper floppers instead.

This actually makes me extremely angry at the sheer ignorance of the general public.
