Craig Young, member of Tripwire’s Vulnerability and Exposures Research Team (VERT) and frequent guest on Security Slice, will be presenting new security research at DEF CON 22 Wireless Village. In his talk, Young will demonstrate how a simple Wi-Fi Pineapple hack could be used to physically attack unsuspecting victims.
In this special podcast, Young will offer a sneak peek at his upcoming presentation. Join Craig and Tyler Reguly as they discuss Young’s research—what exactly is a pineapple Wi-Fi and how this research connects to the Internet of Things.
Young’s talk will take place Friday, August 8, 6:00 PM in DEF CON 22’s Wireless Village.
