Ye Olde Hacking - Johnny Xmas (Circle City Con 2017 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Ye Olde Hacking
Johnny Xmas

Circle City Con 2017

Since the Second Industrial Revolution, technology has been advancing at a rate beyond anyone?s estimates. That means us old folks got to hack a whole lot of awesome stuff in our short lifetimes!. Here, Johnny Xmas will deliver one of his famous ?When I Was Your Age? rants, this time aimed at the 1980?s and 90?s, the rise of the Internet, and the explosion of the hacker community that happened back then, just as it is happening now. Topics covered will probably include cable TV piracy, wardialing, mainframe hacking, ?Hackers Vs. Crackers?, the mere difficulty of Internet & computer access, and how so many of the ?modern? web exploits you use today are really decades old.?

ohnny Xmas is a penetration tester for the Chicago-Based MSS and Security Assessment firm RedLegg, and has been speaking Internationally on the topics of Information Security, Career Advancement and Social Engineering for nearly 15 years. You may recall him from various local news appearances, his work on the 2015 TSA keys leak, or as the Hacking Expert on Gamespot \ MATPAT?s ?Reality Check? series. His infamous mixture of humor, raw sincerity and honest love of people lead to hilarious, but at their core serious discussions revolving around his frustration over how much people seem to desire to get in their own way.?
