Handling of Undercover Reporter at Defcon

This is an interesting piece from Bill Brenner of TechTarget on their SearchSecurity site about the handling of an undercover reporter at Defcon.

Brenner did a good job of reporting both sides of the story from the blogosphere.

For those of you who may remember, the reporter, Michelle Madigan of NBC's Dateline was asked to leave the conference for not getting press credentials. Instead, she went undercover.

I personally only caught the tail end of the tumult as she was leaving H.D. Moore's presentation on Tactical Exploitation. I saw a bunch of people, including some orange-shirted "goons" -- as the conference staff were called -- running out the door of the hall.
