    America's biggest hacker conference is setting a new record for attendance at its 22nd annual event, at the Rio Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada -- and its vendors reflect the event's growth.

    This year's vendor floor was wall-to-wall attendees and packed with hardware and schwag, PR booths and artists. All vendors are doing record sales, and the busiest exhibitor is an unnanounced guest: Tesla Motors.

    DEFCON 22 continues now through August 10.

  • Blackphone

    At DEFCON, the Blackphone was rooted in less than 5 minutes. The user was able to gain root access and enable ADB on the device, without the need to even unlock the bootloader! The exploit has only been partially patched.

    Android is rooted, and iOS is jailbroken frequently.

    If you want security, get a BlackBerry 10, the most secure smartphone in the world.
