I just read a very interesting article about DefCon. For those of you that dont know, DefCon is the annual hacker conference that takes place in Las Vegas. Once a year, hackers from across the universe descend on Sin City for seminars, conferences, competitions, and fun. This year however, A group of Hackers actually hacked the attendees of the conference.
A group has figured out a way to throttle and intercept pretty much all internet traffic by disguising itself as the best route. By doing this, a hacker or group of hackers could compromise almost any aspect of the Internet.
I am sure that there will be some sort of fix for this in the coming days, weeks, or months, but it is still pretty interesting to hear about.
