This is the second in a two-part-series on BlackHat USA 2009. (Part 1)
As we stepped into the taxi the driver asked us, “Where To?”
“Caesar’s Palace.” I said.
“What are you guys in town for?” He said to the four of us in back seat of his cab.
“You guys are the hackers?!”
“Yes, We are ‘the’ hackers.”
“I talked to some of you last year. They told me they could listen to my typing and blow up my computer! How are they able to do that?”
“They do that, using the Asparagus attack. As long as you don’t eat asparagus you will be fine.”
This is a conversation that a few of us had with a taxi driver last year while we were in Las Vegas attending BlackHat. If you happen to get this taxi driver. Please explain the Asparagus Attack. He was full of questions regarding how it is done.
We are now on to Day 2. The hangover should be maintainable enough to see the following talks:
Day 2 – Thursday – July 30th
