Today in 'Rise of the Machines' news: Manifestly sinister Teddy Ruxpin reboot has new dead, flickering LED eyes. Perhaps the last eyes you will ever see, come the robot revolution.

Video from #defcongroup DC801's badge coding environment presentation last night. Learn a little something about the making of the 801 badge and pass it on. Also, get a look into the kind of cool stuff that happens at DEF CON Groups, and seriously consider joining your local chapter so that cool stuff can start happening to you.

If there isn't a DC Group where you are, consider starting one. All the details you need are at defcongroups.org.

Started in 1992 by the Dark Tangent, DEF CON is the world's longest running and largest underground hacking conference. Hackers, corporate IT professionals, and three letter government agencies all converge on Las Vegas every summer to absorb cutting edge hacking research from the most brilliant minds in the world and test their skills in contests of hacking might.

Cool read about #pocketblock, a kid-friendly crypto curriculum that was used @r00tz at #defcon 24
When you’re a cryptographer, telling your preteen kids what you do isn’t easy.

DC813 is holding a CTF competition in January. If you're Tampa-adjacent, this could be a really fun way to get into CTF or level up your blossoming skills.

From the DEF CON Forums:

We will be holding a beginners/intermediate CTF game which has a $10 seating charge for purposes of raising money for DC813. Cash payment at the door. There will be a grand prize given to the first competitor to get the flag (root). This is a boot to root challenge. Seating is limited. NOTE: This CTF does not include multiple attack nodes; this game is designed for beginners and those that wish to sharpen their CTF skills. An OVA file containing the game within a VM will be provided, upon payment, the day of the competition. All monies received will go towards the DC813 Meetup expenses.

You can find out more and check out their meetup page here:

The talks from the @r00tzasylum kids track at DEF CON 24 are now live on the inter-tubes for the edification of young padawans and grizzled Jedi alike. Please enjoy, and make sure to drop a link to any promising younglings who might benefit from the training!

To help you get over that midweek hump, we offer another early release video from DEF CON 24 - 'I Fight for the Users: Attacks Against Top Consumer Products '. In this video,@zfasel and @secbarbie walk you through attacks on 21 popular IoT devices - so you get something more than just proof that one or another connected toaster is ready to pwn. You get to see how how whole product categories are ready to pwn.

There's even tools, in case you want to test the security of some of your own 'smart' devices. Good stuff, delivered with an eye for the lulz.

Please enjoy and then pass it on.

We've got another early release video from DEF CON 24! It 's called 'Can You Trust Autonomous Vehicles?', and in it Jianhao Liu and Chen Yan discuss jamming and spoofing attacks on the sensors of cars like the Tesla Model S. It's definitely a sobering look at the downside of the Jetsons-style tech we're developing and a good reminder of the place security thinking needs to take at the design table.

As always, enjoy and pass it on.
