"DefCon, the long-running, annual hacker conference in Las Vegas, lowered its age restrictions this year for the inaugural 'DefCon Kids Village.'
Roughly 60 young hacker-wannabes aged eight to 16 were mentored in the arts of 'white hat' hacking, or hacking in a responsible manner, this past weekend."
"CyFi, a ten-year-old Girl Scout and DefCon Kids co-founder from California, presented her findings on an exploit in an unnamed social game. She began tinkering with the code after growing impatient with the game's slow place, and discovered that by disconnecting her phone from Wi-Fi and re-setting the clock forward in small increments, she could fast-forward many of the actions in the game, 'a new class of vulnerabilities' she dubbed 'TimeTraveler.'
CyFi presented her findings at a talk called 'Apps—A Traveler of Both Time and Space, And What I Learned About Zero-Days and Responsible Disclosure.'"
