MIT Students Hack Boston Public Transportation
In yet another show of MIT proving that they are smarter than everyone else, 3 students have hacked the Boston T system. The students were set to present today at DEFCON, a hacker conference going on this weekend.
But a federal judge granted Boston’s request to not allow these students to present. The slides of the presentation were leaked and published, so you can read their presentation. Very cool stuff.
CNET covers the the story: “Judge orders halt to Defcon speech on subway card hacking”
And MIT’s newspaper has released the slides of the presentation that never came to fruition: Anatomy of a Subway Hack [PDF File]
