Elite hacker Barnaby Jack dies ahead of Black Hat event
 
"An elite hacker who was due to demonstrate how heart implants could be hacked has died unexpectedly in San Francisco.

Barnaby Jack died on Thursday, the city's medical examiner's office told Reuters, but did not give more details.

He had been due to give a presentation into medical device vulnerabilities at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas taking place next week.

He had said one technique could kill a man from 30 feet (nine metres) away."

I read about it on Reuters: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...96P0K120130726

Hopefully he didn't get socially engineered by the "Pest Control Unit". They typically get access to people's premises from the landlord and tamper with things in your refrigerator.

RIP Barry Jennings and Ted Gunderson.
