Welcome to the July 2019 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

Despite all the crazy last minute scheduling (Again: F#$king Barry!), the show must go on! For those that could not make it last weekend, our regularly “scheduled” programming will happen today. Bring your projects, socialize, and hack the planet in the middle of the summer.

We are going to show everyone that we are your average American computer explorers, hired geeks!

Slipping A Mickey: The Strange Hackable Technology of The Walt Disney Corporation

Even if you live under a rock, everyone on planet earth has heard of M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E and the Walt Disney empire that has managed to copyright three circles. Starting back in the 1950’s with it’s engineering breakthroughs and it’s groundbreaking theme park, the Walt Disney Corporation has always used the latest technology to shake down people’s wallets. In this talk, we will go through a select history of these technologies from the scrapped EPCOT future city, to the innovative People Movers, the ill-fated domain and the Magic Band RFID badges that are being used today! And of course, how to hack all of them!
