Espionage Campaign Targets Corporate Executives Traveling Abroad
Oh, thank you. I needed a nice, rich deep belly laugh on a Monday morning.
I think back over the years of high-level executives who exempted themselves from ever having to change their passwords or using password complexity, or who refused to use VPN because it was too complicated, or whose computers constantly had to be hosed down and reimaged by techs wearing hazmat suits because of highly inappropriate internet browsing on company computers, and malware-infected USB sticks handed to them at conferences ("It was free!")

Bill Blunden's Rejected DEF CON Presentation Posted Online
This talk reads like the tech equivalent of airplane contrails. It's a bunch of loose conjectures strung together from headlines and some casual Google searches. As a tech, I would have liked to have seen more technical meat pointing to more than maybe, possibly, could be.
