This time did I had again a few issues with Google Video. Three videos were uploaded and shown as successful in Google Video’s desktop uploader tool, but are nowhere to be found on the Google Video website. Did I mention that the upload speed is damn slow too? The Session Videos – Batch III This is the 2nd largest batch of all four batches. It contains 36 videos. The first one had 47, the second one only 17 and the last one will only have 25 as well. 47 + 17 + 36 + 25 = 125. Oops, I miscounted the number of sessions in my first post. I thought it would be 122 videos only. Well, the more the merrier. I just finished the download of the content from the DefCon website. They have the sessions of DefCon 13 (2005) up for the most part, in video and audio format plus the presentations and extras. All in all about 8 GB of data :). If their numbering system means anything, then there seem to be a few presentations missing for unknown reason. Also no sign of any video or audio recording from DefCon 14 last year.Btw. If you want to buy the DVD-ROMs rather than watch them online, go to this website and get them for the bargain price of $499.00. (I got them for the super-bargain price of only $299)… I know what you are thinking… WTF? RamblingRight, the price of the recordings is ridicules high. Wasn’t the[…]

Sorry for the delayed 2nd batch of DefCon 15 session and panel videos, but Google Video had issues this week. The up-loader was not working at all for a while and then followed huge delays because of their random tests of content to make sure that it does not violate their policies jadajadajada. The Session Videos – Batch II This batch contains the remaining videos of track 1. I will continue to work on track 2,3,4 and 5 and hope that Google will not have as much issues anymore that I can publish the videos faster.To demonstrate to you how sorry I am about the delay, here three goodies to change your mood. Def Con Media Archive. The media archive has hundreds of megabytes of content (PDF’s, Tools, Code, PowerPoint Slides, MP3 and MP4 movies) from the past 15 Def Cons available for download DefCon CD-ROMS for Def Con 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. I mentioned it in the comments of my post for batch one, but I am sure that a lot of people missed it Def Con 15 sessions Audio – All audio recordings of the Def Con 15 sessions. They are only up for a limited time, because I put them on SendSpace.com and the storage time there is limited. I am looking for a permanent place for them to store on the net and will let you know when I found one. Until then, use this opportunity and download them now (about 900MB) Okay, now[…]

I know that somebody will be pissed and mad at me right now, but who gives a fuck :). Here is the first batch of videos of 47 sessions and panels (of a total of 122), from the world largest hacker conference, DefCon 15, which was held on August 3 – 5, 2007 at the Rivera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.All videos together is a set of 10 DVD-ROMs!!! full of movie files. Bear with me while I am working on getting the rest of the videos up on-line. It’s a pain in the ass and a lot of tedious work. The Session Videos – Batch I The videos are sold commercially for several hundred dollars, but who has that amount of money flying around, right? Okay, I paid the money. So you are welcome. And anyway, isn’t DefCon not about making exploits and scams public? I make them public, alright? Not the way some might have planned, but that is not my problem. I did not get the “Black Hat” sessions and have now second thoughts about it. They cost much less if you ordered it on-site. Damn, I hope somebody else will put them up on the Internet.Okay, the first batch includes the following sessions, which are IMO the most interesting ones. T536 – The Edge of Forever – Making Computer History by Jason Scott from TextFiles.com who also did the documentary BBS – The Documentary, which is also available on-line at Google Video. T539 –[…]

Why Worry Today, If Your Bank Account Gets Hacked Tomorrow

Published on: August 12, 2007

My post from a week ago, about the major flaws in the new online banking security systems that banks around the country deployed recently, did not get any attention. The flaw was explained in detail and demonstrated (by actually hacking a bank account) at the Defcon 15 hacker conference in Las Vegas. One person dugg it at Digg.com and that was it. End of story, nobody seems to be interested. Well, it only affects pretty much everybody, at least everybody who uses online banking. Meanwhile did also other blogs that are specialized in application and system security write about the story. DarkReading.com was one of the most known publications who published the story “New Bank Practices Make Hacking Easier” a couple days after I published mine. Their story died at Digg.com, just as mine, but at least did some more bloggers pick up their story. Here are a few other bloggers who picked it up: M. M. Madan: Bank’s “Two Factor” Schemes Are Fundamentally Flawed AuthenticationWorld.Com: Why more authentication may be harmful to banks FIRST.org: New Bank Practices Make Hacking Easier Dr. Neal Krawetz/Hackerfactor.com: Black Hat and Defcon Post-Conference (as part of a general DefCon 15 summary Here is a picture of Brendan O’Connor, who presented the issue at the conference, which makes it easy to understand, why some people might not give him the attention he deserves.It is funny how things work sometimes. On the one hand are people going berserk and crazy about some “big privacy issues” that[…]
