Wow. 4 out of 5. And it’s only Wednesday.

via TweetDeck

@ma_ttie I was on a panel with Kaspersky earlier today. I think he went further off-piste than I did. We’ll see when the video is posted.

via TweetDeck in reply to ma_ttie

@jamver You’re right of course, but I figured I’d keep it simple for the one-tweet explanation. Maybe “an Australian” not “the” is better.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamver

What follows is a random sequence of observations, links and retweets until the sleeping pill kicks in. It’s why Twitter was invented.

via TweetDeck

Invited to drinks next week with Eugene Kaspersky? Um, sure. What could possibly go wrong?

via TweetDeck

Back at the hotel, because. Tired. Exhausted, really. And the batteries in everything ran out. Comms will continue to be intermittent. Cope.

via TweetDeck

Why are people still tweeting random outdated crap from last night?

via TweetDeck

Cliff Richard is Wired for Sound, wow ho wow ho wow ho wow.

via TweetDeck

@rayschippers Ha! I just ordered food but it’ll be quick, I’ll pop by there afterwards.

via TweetDeck in reply to rayschippers

@rayschippers I’m still at the conference venue, plans unknown. I’ll let you know. Any idea where you’re going?

via TweetDeck in reply to rayschippers

@Big_Waity is both Australia’s infosec response team and an annual conference that’s happening now.

via TweetDeck in reply to Big_Waity

RT @DrewBoyTweets: Has anyone used the headline “Grubby police work” yet? No? Shame on you all!

via TweetDeck

At least that’s how Hay explained it, while not answering specific questions, @jeamland @renailemay. Ain’t read Ben’s yet. /cc @glengyron

via TweetDeck

The police were NOT treating it as stolen goods, @jeamland @renailemay, that was just analogy for why @bengrubb could have been of interest.

via TweetDeck

I’m going to find some lunch now. I’ll respond to stuff very sporadically until I get an actual meal. Wish me luck.

via TweetDeck

And @bengrubb’s description of events is now online at SMH. http://arseh.at/72z

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Press conference with Det Supt Brian Hay”: complete audio recording. http://arseh.at/72y

via TweetDeck

I’ve just recorded an interview with @WendycCarlisle for ABC Radio’s PM on… guess what topic?

via TweetDeck

@dananimal It does NOT matter if it was EASY for you to access without authorisation. The legal test is whether you were authorised.

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@dananimal “Did you have authorisation to access this computer?” “No.” So accessing it is a crime. Method 100% irrelevant.

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@dananimal Carrying a baseball bat. Going to a game? Col? Sat on your shoulder, striding angrily? Offensive weapon. /cc @stiabhang

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@dananimal You’re thoroughly confusing intent with method. Method is irrelevant. A bunch of criminal law 101 you’re missing. /cc @stiabhang

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

Is anyone still about who was at Christian Heinrich’s demo? I have a radio journalist who’d like to talk.

via TweetDeck

The crime wouldn’t be “guessing a URL”, @dananimal, but accessing a computer without authorisation. How it’s done is irrelevant.

via TweetDeck

Being hunted down by ABC Radio. Poorly. ;)

via TweetDeck

Met at @technologyspec: “Privacy is a commodity”, biting the hand that feeds me. http://arseh.at/72t

via TweetDeck

@POTRM @zdnetaustralia You left out “yet”. Who knows whether the “ethical hacker” will or won’t be arrested down the track?

via TweetDeck in reply to POTRM

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Qld cops denounce ‘ethical hacking’” http://arseh.at/72s

via TweetDeck

And… the ZDNet Tough Talk recording is finished. I’ll pimp it when the edited video is online, some time down the track.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Yeah, it massages my tongue.”

via TweetDeck

Story filed, now on stage in the yellow room for ZDNet Tough Talk.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Schnenier’s a dick.”

via TweetDeck

@D_Keating I’m flying out at 0855 tomorrow morning. So here on the Gold Coast tonight only. I’m not sure what our plans are.

via TweetDeck in reply to D_Keating

It’s OK, I’ve “stolen” some lemonade from the Juniper Networks stand while they were distracted by Space Invaders.

via TweetDeck

Crowdsourced drink fail. I keep telling you people that crowdsourcing is bullshit.

via TweetDeck

Currently compressing the complete audio of the press conference down to MP3 prior to upload. CAN HAS MOAR COREZ?

via TweetDeck

Wed plan, revised: Upload media conference audio; write story about same; 1320 ZDNet Tough Talk panel on cloud security http://arseh.at/6y8

via TweetDeck

It would be truly awesome if someone brought me a large, cold drink. I’m in the “VIP room”, day one’s media work room.

via TweetDeck

Det Supt Brian Hay press conference re @bengrubb [last 12 mins in rough video] at http://arseh.at/72n

via TweetDeck

Processing the audio from the Qld Police media conference. It’ll be posted online “soon”.

via TweetDeck

Sorry for ads on the stream, didn’t know. Haven’t used this Ustream account in a year.

via TweetDeck

I’m recording the audio but forgot to press record on the video. Screenshots pls!

via TweetDeck

Live from media room now…

via TweetDeck

here we go… live now…

via TweetDeck

There is no audio on the stream yet as we’re chatting here. Audio will be turned on before we go live properly.

via TweetDeck

Live video stream from Qld Police media conference will start shortly at http://stilgherrian.com/…

via TweetDeck

Downloading new version of Adobe Flash Player to fix known Ustream bug.

via TweetDeck

Attempting to get a Ustream feed going from the room where Det Supt Hay’s media conference will be held.

via TweetDeck

Can someone tell me WHICH is the conference room this media conference is being held in? Where in the building? ? /cc @QPSmedia

via TweetDeck

QPSmedia @bengrubb media conference. Det Supt Brian Hay, 10am, Royal Pines media conference room

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 9:29 AM, May 18th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

QPSmedia Our bad @bengrubb was arrested for questioning briefly Our tweet last night was based on information provided at the time Apologies

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 9:28 AM, May 18th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

@iBleeter No, I’m not a witness. I’m just one of several who spoke with @bengrubb when he returned to around what? I guess 6pm?

via TweetDeck in reply to iBleeterOhDot3

Loving how folks 2000km away imagine they know more about what’s happening from a few tweets than the people involved.

via TweetDeck

Curiouser and curiouser. @ashermoses is calling @QPSmedia liars.

via TweetDeck

Sessions may not start until later, @rbbayliss, but I have stories to write up.

via TweetDeck

Heading down to breakfast. I’m running dreadfully late, I suspect.

via TweetDeck

According to @bengrubb last night, Fairfax [their legal team?] advised him not to speak further. /cc @D_Keating

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: MOAR coverage from including 1320 ZDNet Tough Talk panel on cloud security http://arseh.at/6y8 then evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

If I find out any actual facts about the @bengrubb thing I’ll post them, but right now I have to face the day…

via TweetDeck

I do appreciate the weird irony in me filing a story quoting Qld Police while the @bengrubb arrest / not-arrest was going down.

via TweetDeck

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Silent victims thwart cybercops: Qld Police” http://arseh.at/727

via TweetDeck

I see SMH is still going with the “Journalist arrested at IT security conference line though. Curious. http://arseh.at/72d

via TweetDeck

“AusCERT demo piques police interest”, reports @zdnetaustralia http://arseh.at/72c

via TweetDeck

Oh, folks picking up the Twitter stream from last night? @bengrubb wasn’t actually arrested, says @QPSmedia.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Wednesday. Even MOAR bugger.

via TweetDeck

Uhoh. Thursday. Bugger.

via TweetDeck

FFS you arsehats do keep up!

via TweetDeck

Oh dear God SMS is so amusing PMSL ROFLBBQ.

via TweetDeck

Stupid fucking little hotel room card key work you cunt!

via TweetDeck

It’s not getting better, I can tell you that. Downhill, you know?

via TweetDeck

Something about whether Asian trannies have power of arrest. I told him it depends of they’re police officers or not.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Is it wrong to squat? I mean, I’m not peeing or anything.” .
