Congratulations!
 
Yeongjin Jang and Insu Yun captured an impressive victory earlier this month at +DEF CON. The doctoral student duo led their team to victory in the conference's Capture the Flag Competition dethroning two-time champion Plaid Parliament of Pwning in the process. Congratulations! -- http://b.gatech.edu/1Lpt3qF

#defconflashbackfriday this week is another popular talk from DEF CON 23. It's Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek and their presentation entitled 'Remote Exploitation of an Unaltered Passenger Vehicle'. The vulnerabilities discussed in this talk led to a pretty big recall you might have seen covered on the nightly news. 

Enjoy, pass it on and if you're looking for a less connected vehicle, we hear good things about the AMC Gremlin. That thing never connected with anyone.

Another DEF CON 23 Early Release video: "And That's How I Lost My Other Eye: Further Explorations in Data Destruction" by the fearless Zoz.  From the abstract:

" While purging incriminating material residing on spinning disks remains the focus, the research has been expanded to encompass solid state storage and mobile solutions to your terabyte trashing needs. With best efforts to comply with the original constraints, the 2015 update features more analysis of the efficacy of kinetic projectiles, energetic materials and high voltages for saving your freedom at the potential cost of only a redundant body part... or two."

While this year's official DEF CON badge was decidedly analog, the DEF CON Shoot badge was hella digital. Tons of cool functionality in an elegantly compact form factor. H/T to 533ess for the YouTube overview.

Jayson E. Street is famous for his awkward hugs (that is so for real - you can google it). He is also famous for speaking at Cons and spreading the hacker gospel around the globe. His new mission? Revitalizing the DEF CON Groups.

This is an interview from DEF CON 23 – DT talks to Jayson about his DCG plans, his thoughts on the scene and his collection of lanyard-centric Con bling.

If Jayson's ideas about Groups sound cool to you, visit the website at defcongroups.org and find out about joining or starting a DC Group where you live. Momentum, people. Keep it going and spread the word.

Congratulations to CryptoK, pseudoku, Elegin who successfully solved our DEF CON 23 member t-shirt puzzle with only minutes left of the conference!
This summer EFF unveiled the sixth limited edition member's t-shirt for the 23rd annual DEF CON, the premier world hacker conference in Las Vegas. This year’s design, like the shirts we produced in 2013 and 2014, includes a puzzle that involves the use of encryption. The front of this year’s shirt features a long cipher text, displayed in a 1940s typeface:

Check out the new Contest, Drunk Hacker History tonight in Track One at 19:00! What is it, you ask? From the DEF CON Program:

New this year for DEF CON 23, we bring you a contest unlike anything you've ever seen before (and may never see again). The DEF CON community has a rich history. It is a history is filled with colorful adventures, half-truths and angry hotel managers. This contest will brush the dust off some of the most celebrated, obscure and redacted moments in Hacker History through the interpretation of a group of pre-selected contestants with the help of C2H6O. Each contestant will be "prepared" for their participation by our contest staff before being brought in front of a panel of judges. A topic will be randomly selected pointing to a moment of hacker history and the contestant will have 5-7 minutes to provide their account. Points will be given for accuracy, level of "focus", and other areas just made up on the fly by the judges, and in the end the contestant with the most points will be crowned the "Drunk Hacker History" champion for 2015. Note: This is not a Black Badge contest (yet).

Today’s #defconflashbackfriday is from the recently completed DEF CON 23, and it’s kind of a paradigm shifter in the world of identity theft. Chris Rock from Kustodian shows how it’s possible to exploit the systems that record our births and deaths to create and destroy ‘life’ at will. The possibilities are wide-ranging: get an enemy declared dead, get a fictional person declared born and sell them as a whole-cloth identity or get them declared dead for the insurance payout. Start your whole life over with an anonymously created, brand-new identity. It’s a fascinating and troubling presentation that should generate much-needed discussion about how we secure the entire digital lifecycle.
