A Hacker Shows Us How Easy It Is To Gain Unauthorized Access

The bad news is that it does not take that much skill!

Hacker Pablos Holman does a quick overview of some hacking capabilities, bringing it home for the audience by showing them how he can access information relevant to their daily lives. He also demonstrated in very humorous ways that he can exploit hotel systems by hacking, including hotel TV services.

And it also makes the serious point that the systems that surround us are far too vulnerable.
