Gary McKinnon has been confirmed to appear on the hackers' panel at Infosec.
McKinnon, who is likely to be extradicted to the US to face charges of hacking US government computers, will face IT security professionals on Friday.
You'd expect him to be in for a rough time, but the portents are that he will get a fairly sympathetic reaction. In a poll of Infosec attendees, 75 percent said he should not be extradicted to the US.
McKinnon claims to have been looking for evidence of UFOs when he accessed the military files.
