+ - 12 year old schools hackers on lock picking

Submitted by 23orgFlea
23orgFlea (529647) writes "Last weekend the http://layerone.info/ security convention was held in Pasadena, CA. The Gringo Warrior Challenge made it's home there for a couple of days and let a bunch of geeks and hackers try to break out of a simulated Mexican prison.

The goal was to break out in 5 steps:

1. get out of handcuffs
2. open 'cell' door
3. overpower guard
4. break into filing cabinet to retrieve passport
5. break out of prison

For each choice except numbers 1 and 3 there was an easy, medium and hard choice. Locks had difficulty modifiers and it was a timed event.

Every single guy there, many who own their own handcuffs and practice all the time, were schooled by a 12 year old girl named Ella. Sadly I don't have her best run on video, which was 1m42s. This is her slow run, at about 5m

Btw, Ella chose all hard locks in her runs."

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes. -- Dr. Warren Jackson, Director, UTCS
