Friendly Pineapple?

All you self taught hackers will be interested to know that this fellow, the producer and host of the tech show Hak5, Darren Kitchen has been running a hacked router out of plastic pineapple. This router tricks users into connecting to it instead of the actual router. He can eavesdrop on your conversation at the local coffee shop with his hacked router that’s running this software. Kind of scary.

He’s been at this since “he was old enough to take apart an Atari 2600.” He went from a 14 year old self taught hacker to the producer and host of the tech show Hak5. As they say on the video, the “culture” has come so far that it is acceptable to be called a geek, it’s no longer an insult.

Kitchen isn’t just sticking to hacking, he works for different companies to keep other hackers out. He says in the video, how he thought that he knew a lot about the technology before he started the show in 2005, but there’s always more to learn when it comes to this field. It is one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
