Can any of you that experienced room searches or room search policies in hotels other than Ceasar’s properties reach out to me and DM their experience. I have confirmation that other hotels *were* searching so want to build a comparison. Please R/T.

Thank-you everyone for your kind words and trust. I do have an update but will sleep on it because honestly I’m beat. This has been a very very intense DEFCON. Also, Im almost certainly going to need all your help in the coming days.

I would be very interested in getting a look at these. We uncovered an interesting attack during con (referred to in the transparency report) as and I worked to exonerate and innocent badge maker.

Ceaars have a formal process for removing or securing ”contraband” which that wouldn’t even meet the category of. You should contact Ceasars and report it as stolen. The more accurate time window you can give them the better their chances of seeing on CCTV.

I need the community behind me in large numbers to effect change like this. Im hoping this is a wake up call.

I can only fix this if the community is behind me. Im hoping this will provoke that.

This is the heart of my concern in its entirety. Just look to the TSA for examples of what policies like this can become and thats despite some good people fighting HARD to prevent routine erosion of privacy.

Look at every incident relating to this and other incidents this year and then look to see what role I played. Do I look like someone who will sit back and do nothing?

Ask yourself this and feel free to look into it: When have I done *anything* but fight for this community? I haven’t *been* to a talk to party in years. Thats because I and my team are too busy helping protect attendees.

That statement would have also closed all the doors we have carefully opened to become trusted influencers. It took a lot effort to get ANY statement out. However I wanted the community to hear that we were listening and working on it. Even if we cant be specific at this time.

I was NOT saying we should become sheep and blindly accept this. While we MUST NOT fight the hotel (it will only alienate them) we are Hackers, change is what we do, and change is what we must do. Not just for DEF CON but for all of Vegas. 2/2

Let me make this clear then: I do not or condone the searches. However I understand why they are happening I lived in Vegas and have friends affected by the tragedy. When I said this is the new normal I was warning the community that this is how things will be. 1/2
