DefCon 2013 ~ How the FBI is now in the Hacking Business too

Around 15,000 hackers and security experts descended on Las Vegas for the twenty-first annual DefCon last week to discuss the latest and greatest exploits and vulnerabilities targeting seemingly anything and everything. RT web producer Andrew Blake was on hand and brings us this report of how hacks for everything from drones and self-driving cars to digital cameras and toys for toddlers were discussed at DefCon. Phone phreak Captain Crunch, the ACLU's Chris Soghoian and robotics expert Zoz also weigh in on what happens at DefCon, and how the FBI is now in the hacking business too.
