We head out to DC for Shmoocon, our favorite hacker conference on the east coast, to talk to some of the brightest minds in security. We talk to Tom Eston about social media security, TheX1le about his new tool airdrop-ng, Jason Scott about preserving our digital heritage, Chris Paget about man-in-the-middle attacks against GSM networks, and much more.
Put together by a band of IT ninjas, security professionals and hardcore gamers, Hak5 isn't your typical tech show. We take on hacking in the old-school sense, covering everything from network security, open source and forensics, to DIY modding and the homebrew scene. Then we wrap it all up with a healthy dose of cocktails and geek comedy. Damn the warranties, it's time to Trust your Technolust.
