CNET News Daily Podcast: Journalist-on-journalist hacking at Black Hat
Three reporters from a French security magazine are booted from Black Hat after sniffing the press room wireless network for the access info of fellow journalists.
In what's being regarded as a total breach of professional ethics, three reporters from Global Security Mag were removed from the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas on Thursday after attempting to expose the username and passwords of two reporters in attendance, including a CNET News employee. The magazine was a co-sponsor of the event, but the three parties responsible were asked to leave and barred from all future events, including this weekend's DefCon. For more detail, see the accounts from CNET News' Elinor Mills and Robert Vamosi who are in Vegas now.
