Black Hat speaker denied entry to the US

Published by at 11:16 am under Hacking

Halvar Flake, well-known speaker on reverse engineering, was denied entry into the United States this weekend for his presentation at Black Hat 2007. Halvar had given presentations at Black Hat for the last seven years, but when he tried to gain entry to the US after a 9 1/2 hour flight, he was sent back to Germany due to a mistake he made in the visa process. The chances of him getting a visa and being allowed back into the US in time for his presentation are slim to none.

This is what I look like at 6 in the morning, before the first cup of coffee. And I’m more coherent after that coffee too.
