Daring Fireball: Interview: Dino Dai Zovi

Daring Fireball: Interview: Dino Dai Zovi

John Gruber over at Daring Fireball has an interesting interview with Dino Dai Zovi who wrote the winning exploit at the CanSecWest MacBook Pro hacking contest.

Dai Zovi relates his background in computer security, a bit about the contest, and some insight about his hack. He gives insight into what the hack was abou, what type of access he gained, and the threat of such a hack.

All in all worth the read for any geek, especially Mac fans. The best thing about this type of interview is how it demystifies the event and gets down to the truth and what it means. Also a nice introduction to the through process of a hacker.

Read, enjoy, hack,
