Black Hat Disgraces Itself with Fake Mac Hack

Smug Mac User: 1, Hackers: 0 in which the presenters at the Black Hat security show showed a new "vulnerability" out on the Mac Book Pro based on a "flaw" in the wireless software which got a bunch of attention.

Only thing is, they removed some software from the machine to make it vulnerable to the attack. So, oops, dudes but that don't count. And it would seem that they opened themselves up to a lawsuit by the folks at Apple for intentionally trying to undermine their secure machines and sully their name.

Either way, they've lost pretty much every ounce of credibility they might have had. I would guess attendance will be done markedly at the next show.
