A security researcher due to "jackpot" an ATM live on stage at the upcoming
Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas has had his talk pulled by his
Security and network device vendor Juniper Networks binned Barnaby Jack's
presentation -- an anticipated highlight of the security conference -- following
pressure from the affected ATM vendor.
"The affected ATM vendor has expressed to us concern about publicly disclosing
the research findings before its constituents were fully protected," a statement
issued by Juniper reads. "Considering the scope and possible exposure of this
issue on other vendors, Juniper decided to postpone Jacks presentation until all
affected vendors have sufficiently addressed the issues found in his research."
Risky.Biz understands the ATM vendor had been given notification of the upcoming
presentation, and Juniper Networks was initially happy for Mr. Jack to present
his research findings publicly.
