Samy Kamkar is an independent security researcher, sometimes known for creating
The MySpace Worm, one of the fastest spreading viruses of all time. His open
source software, hardware, and research highlight the insecurities and privacy
implications in everyday technologies, from the Evercookie, which produces
virtually immutable respawning cookies, to SkyJack, a drone that wirelessly
hijacks and autonomously controls any other drones within wireless distance.
His work has been cited by the NSA, triggered hearings on Capitol Hill, and has
been the basis for security advancements across major web browsers,
smartphones, and vehicles.
