Mac hack turns FUD?

A taped demo at Blackhat (taped because the demonstrators were fearful someone would interfere) was supposed to show a MacBook wireless vulnerability. As it turns out, the drivers that SecureWorks researchers used were from a third party.

So much for taped demos.

***UPDATE***

You have to love this line:

“As part of a responsible disclosure policy, we are not disclosing the name of the third-party wireless device driver until a patch is available.”

Responsible disclosure my ass. Can anyone say “banned from Blackhat demos, for life?”

***UPDATE 2***

Maybe that should be journalists banned from Blackhat instead.
