Catch-up post...

Best thing about defcon was just being there with all those other like-minded, curious, inquisitive, intelligent people. The chill out room, constantly playing music and movies on projectors gave the place a seriously cool atmosphere. Additionally, there was a group there displaying their "Wall o' Sheep" which was an application they made that scans wireless internet traffic and picks web/pop3/webmail/rdp/etc usernames and passwords out of the air and displays on the page the site visited (or app used), the username, the password, and the service. Yes it really is that easy to pick your username and password out of the air when you use wireless to connect to any site (yes, banking sites too) BTW, cisco sucks. GO LYNN!
