Why is this sort of thing still happening? Finding a hotel room safe with a default code is not a particularly new security issue, which begs the question as to why it is still happening today if the issue is incredibly easy to fix. I encountered this issue recently when I had checked into a hotel. After flicking through the TV I got bored and turned my attention to the hotel room safe.
BSidesBelfast (October 31st 2019) was the first time that I actually presented at a major conference. I’ve been to quite a few other BSides events, but always as an attendee, never as a speaker. That all changed when I got the opportunity to present a talk on ‘Offensive Ansible for Red Teams - Attack, Build, Learn’. TL;DR: In this article I’ll talk about my overall experiences at BSides Belfast 2019 as well as give a brief overview of the talk I presented.
