Congrats to @Granick!

Hacker lawyer extraordinaire, Director of Civil Liberties for the Stanford Center for Internet and Society and possible secret superhero Jennifer Granick just won the Palmer Prize! The prize, awarded for work that sheds light on the interplay of civil liberties and
State security is for her upcoming book "American Spies: Modern Surveillance, Why You Should Care, and What to Do About It". We ca't wait to read it.

Jennifer is also a frequent and popular speaker at DEF CON. To give those unfamiliar an idea why her work and ideas are so valued by the hacker community, take a look at her most recent DEF CON presentation. It's entitled "Slouching Towards Utopia; The State of the Internet Dream" from DEF CON 24.

As always, enjoy and pass it on.

DEF CON in the News:

The trailer for 'Coded', a new hacker-focused series from Freethink Media, has tons of shots from DEF CON 23. It also contains interview footage with Ladar Levison and Nico Sell. We've only seen the trailer, but It looks promising.

Here's the promo blurb:
"The data war is in full swing. Foreign governments are hacking major corporations, major corporations are collecting massive amounts of consumer data, and the NSA is listening to all of them. With malevolent hackers on one side and oppressive regimes on the other, data security is as important to the global economy and human rights as free speech and the rule of law. Join us as we profile a new generation of programmers helping consumers and companies alike protect their financial information, their identities, and their freedom."

CSPAN's feed was interrupted today by 10 or so minutes of Russia Today [RT]. According to their response on Twitter the break in programming was likely due to an internal routing error, as RT is one of the many channels CSPAN monitors. If a different theory emerges, @CSPAN promises to share it.

The immediate social media reaction to the event, however, reminded us of a famous incident from way back in 1987, generally referred to as the 'Max Headroom Incident'. Essentially, on Nov. 22, 1987 someone managed to get a pre-recorded video starring a person in a Max Headroom mask making semi-coherent fun of WGN and professional broadcasting in general. Many, many people were weirded out, and the perpetrator/perpetrators were never found.

It's a fascinating snapshot of media hacking in the pre-web era, and a cool D.B. Cooper-style unsolved mystery. Here's some links for the curious.

And if you really want to abandon productivity for the rest of the week, the armchair sleuths of Reddit also have taken some swings at solving the puzzle.

Hacking into the Home Depot credit card system, the financial records at JP Morgan Chase? Child’s play! Try hacking into the feed of a local Chicago television station and replacing the sport anchor with a really creepy incarnation of Max Headroom.

Today's treat - a YouTube playlist chock full of SE goodness from the Social Engineering Village at DEF CON 24! All the presentations and a bonus live recording of the Social Engineering podcast. There is much to be learned here, so block off some time.

As always, take what you can use and pass it on. The best defense against the dark arts of SE is exposure and education.
