Guest Blog: Remembering Barnaby Jack

Black Hat issue a statement following the unexpected death on Thursday of world-renowned hacker, Barnaby Jack, who was due host a presentation at Black Hat 2013 to reveal how heart implants can be hacked.

By Cbr Rolling Blog

We have lost a member of our family. Everyone would agree that the life and work of Barnaby Jack are legendary and irreplaceable.

Barnaby had the ability to take complex technology and intricate research and make it tangible and accessible for everyone to learn and grow from. Beyond his work in our industry, Barnaby was an incredibly warm-hearted and welcoming individual with a passion for celebrating life. We all have a hilarious and upbeat story about Barnaby. He is truly a shining example of what we love about this community.

Black Hat will not be replacing Barnaby’s talk on Thursday, August 1. No one could possibly replace him, nor would we want them to. The community needs time to process this loss.

The hour will be left vacant as a time to commemorate his life and work, and we welcome our attendees to come and share in what we hope to be a celebration of his life. Barnaby Jack meant so much to so many people, and we hope this forum will offer an opportunity for us all to recognise the legacy that he leaves behind.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Barnaby Jack’s family and loved ones. Words cannot adequately describe how much he will be missed, but it is certain that Barnaby will NEVER be forgotten.
