    Irony. Serves him right.

    The man should be in touch with the manufacturers of these devices however not performing this as a public stunt when others could misuse it.

    That would be the right approach, but given the nature of most of these publicly traded companies ... they would rather immedietely prosecute security researchers who come forward with bugs or exploits. Facebook actually took the right approach of offering cash rewards, as long as an individual went through their protocol of documentation and confidentiality.

    Apple recently scapegoated a guy who pointed out a vulnerbilitiy of leaked personal account info for their dev portal which millions of programmers use daily. They said they were hacked which was completely inaccurate.

    But standing up at a black hat conference and announcing how to expire someone who relies on a pacemaker is morally wrong. Wouldnt be surprised if some INT'L Bankers put a bounty on his head after he demonstrated making ATM's dump out cash with his software override.
