Submission + - NBC reporter flees from Defcon after cover blown. (theregister.co.uk)

linuxuser3.14 writes: "Fresh from The Register:

"Defcon A rare moment of drama came to Defcon when a woman fled the conference after being exposed in front of hundreds of other attendees as an undercover television reporter on a crusade to expose collusion between cyber criminals and federal agents."

The woman, identified by conference organizers as a producer for Dateline NBC, bolted a few minutes after a panel called Spot the Fed began. After being tipped off about the covert operation — and knowing the producer was in the audience — organizers announced to the standing-room only crowd that the contest was being changed to "spot the undercover reporter."

Silly question — but was anyone there? What happened?"
