quote: DefCon security on Friday warned attendees at the annual hacker conference that Dateline NBC may have sent a mole with a hidden camera to the event to capture hackers admitting to crimes. DefCon says it was tipped off by their own mole at Dateline who sent them a pic of the undercover journalist who DefCon employees identified as producer Michelle Madigan.
quote: According to DefCon staff, Madigan had told someone she wanted to out an undercover federal agent at DefCon. That person in turn warned DefCon about Madigan's plans ... DefCon staff say that Madigan was asked four times -- two times on the phone and two times at the conference -- if she wanted to obtain press credentials, but she declined.
quote: In an interesting twist, a federal undercover agent tipped DefCon staff that Madiga was a mole sent in by NBC.
quote: First, she is not cute unless that is a horrible pic of her.
quote: The one thing the government and hackers can both apparently agree on: reporters suck.
quote: guy, guy, guy, nerd guy, guy, nerd guy, fat guy, nerd guy, HOT BLONDE , Nerd guy, zit faced guy, awkward teen guy.
quote: Madiga claimed that she was sent to try and uncover federal agents that attend the event.
quote: "The people from Defcon talked to her four times, two before the show, two on the scene, and offered her press credentials and the opportunity to officially talk to the people she wanted to talk to. Four times she declined.Too bad. They knew when her plane took off. They knew when her plane landed. They knew when she picked up her non-press attendee pass (human in the vernacular). They followed her around. They knew when she walked into the ladies room to wire up, camera and sound. She knew that the camera was not allowed but did it anyway, and told a goon that she was doing so."http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=41471
