Look, we get it: cybersecurity is hard.
Still, you'd think the folks at the Black Hat cybersecurity conference in Las Vegas this week would have a better handle on things. And yet, according to noted French security researcher Baptiste Robert, they still managed to release a conference app that could put attendees' phones at risk.
The conference, which is now in its 22nd year, runs Aug. 3-8, and is ground zero for cybersecurity companies peddling their wares. It's followed by the DEF CON hacking conference, also in Las Vegas, which has a decidedly non-corporate ethos.
