Real hackers stay close to the action

One of the more pleasant highlights from last week’s Infosecurity was having an excellent dinner with the IOActive team, an interesting Seattle based security services company.

I was particularly impressed to find that Apple founder Steve Wozniak is on their advisory board. It just goes to show that at least some mainstream IT hackers (in the true sense of the word) have stayed close to their roots.

Steve Wozniak is famously connected with Blue Boxes, perhaps the earliest dedicated hacking tool. He probably understands security better than many CISOs. I wish them well.
