Friday the conference really started. Hard decisions on which talks to see had to be made.
In the morning I opted for three DEF CON official talks. Starting with "Computer Hacks in the Russia-Ukraine war". Kenneth Geers presented an information packed summary on the cyberwar that is waged by both sides of the conflict.
Next up and on a more humorous note; "OopsSec - The bad, the worst and the ugly of APT's operations" by Tomer Bar. Scores were given based on the severity and stupidity of APT's operational blunders.
During lunchbreak I headed over to the Social Engineering village, which introduced a new segment, where volunteers from the audience could try their hand at cold-calling. Each contestant was given 5 minutes to achieve several objectives such as retrieving information about the Wi-Fi network credentials, and the target's physical security measures.
