times are a changing... but, i see now what tyou mean... still, i just dont
know why people even INSTALL or, accept anything at a defcon meeting, ofc
someone will try to make some name, mining for data, is stealing an id
nowdays, so there would be GREat potential for one device, to connect to
some network, and rescan for other weak/known exploits... then you have an
army :)

To my knowledge, I was watching people's devices getting popped with little to no interaction by their part. If memory 
serves me correctly maybe someone did an apt-get update on their machine, but outside of that just the usual browsing 
and remote work.

but, intersting about 4G... i have not yet to see that haxd so, 1 point for
that but, thats prolly coz ui aint really been looking at that side of it

It was impressive. Essentially if you had a device on and near the Rio during (and for some time after) DEF CON, you 
had a high chance of being compromised.
