DEF CON Blog - Day 3

Day 3 - Saturday

I was not able to get myself up as early as I did on the previous days, so I only got to the conference at about 11am. We went around the convention center and talked to people, but everything was very busy and we did not want to wait in lines.

Second Rave Lights Hacking Attempt

We figured out some more about how the rave lights are supposed to be hacked. The lights have a keypad on them and if you punch in the right code you can take control of another light station.


We were in our hotel room when we heard that Caesar’s forum was being evacuated because of a bomb threat over the DEF CON ham radio band. I listened in for longer and it quickly became evident that the convention center would not be opening back up that night.
