Black Hat 2014 Venue
The trainings component of the 2014 Black Hat USA conference in Las Vegas has already begun. Press folk aren’t invited for trainings, but SecurityWatch will be there to cover the briefings Wednesday and Thursday. The briefings can be shocking. In past years, researchers revealed a technique to pwn any iOS device using a gimmicked charger, described a technique for mining your Twitter feed to create convincing phishing emails, and demonstrated an Android weakness that would allow hackers to Trojanize an Android app undetectably. And those were all part of the relatively sedate Black Hat; things get even hairier at the wild and woolly DefCon that follows.

The world’s best hackers flock to these conferences, people who live and breathe security and hacking. They don’t stop trying to hack all the things just because they’re at a conference.

The resulting world constitution will contain a safeguard that protects the status quo of the privileged countries for a limited length of time in the footsteps of the South African constitution. So the world constitution poses no risk to the mighty while war and cruelty suddenly are a thing of the past.

T 2 – An “Offer of Reunification to Israel” can be made by Germany to date
