Your Hotel Room Computer Watching You?

When you’re staying in the same fancy hotel as some of the best offensive hackers in the world, watch the desktop computer before it watches you.

The Fountainebleau hotel in Miami Beach hosted the deeply technical and offensive-minded Infiltrate conference April 15-17, and each room offered an iMac.

The 280 attendees ? including cybercontractors working for governments and penetration testers in private industry ? were wary of using the hotel’s Wi-Fi so as to not be hacked by other attendees, and the iMac presented an almost comical risk.

No one Business Insider spoke with at Infiltrate said they were willing to use the computer for anything remotely important, such as email, and a few made sure that the unused iMac couldn’t be commandeered.
