Submission + - Journalist "arrested" at IT security conference (smh.com.au)

DeathElk writes: "Fairfax media IT journalist Ben Grubb was detained by police in Australia after publishing an article on events at a security conference in Queensland. The article describes methods used to bypass Facebook security controls, as presented by security expert Christian Heinrich. Although police deny "arresting" the journalist, he was detained for questioning and his iPad was confiscated. Is it no longer safe in Australia to report on events and the facts arising from these events?"
