mjacobat May 10,2015 Cool video. Samy Kambar is probably best known for his hack on MySpace back in 2005 where he used to worm to generate over a millon friends on his account.
pseagrenat June 19,2015 I enjoy watching videos from DEF CON as most of the guest speakers are very talented and present the information at a reasonable level that can be understood by most people. I really enjoyed the portion covering geolocation and how Google is capturing additional information that most people are not aware of. I believe that privacy is dying due to the growth of social media and technology as a whole.
Similar to Google obtaining wifi data, a cellular phone that is simply turned on and not being used, is still trackable due to the fact that it needs to be able to send and retrieve communications, therefore it is always broadcasting information similar to that of a laptop or router. For more information pertaining to a free method of using geolocation of YOUR cell phone within a few miles, see the following link:

mrgodfrey3at July 01,2015 Until the good guys are as smart or smarter than the hackers then these exploits will continue to be, well, exploited. Great video. Now, what are the service providers doing about this?

hanna88at November 02,2015 This guy is incredibly smart. He seems to be fluent in so many different areas of the cyber world--coding, networking, hacking, etc. It was nice that after he explains how to exploit something he offers suggestions on how to protect yourself from the issue--NAT pinning for example. The GeoLocation services stuff doesn't surprise me but now I won't look at that Google car the same way. The pattern in the tech world seems to be that with every new feature or offering, there is some negative side effect or infringement on privacy that comes with it.
