Grepping The Gropers: Airport Security

Grepping the Gropers:Airport Security was a talk given at this year's DEFCON by security professional Bryan Halfpap, and is a pretty sorry tale of lax network security at McCarran International Airport in LasVegas, NV - not some rinky-dink regional airport, but one with almost 40 million passengers each year. The basic story is that, because a Guest account was left active on a server (and apparently never checked for several years), it opened up a lot of information to scrutiny. The kicker is, that when Halfpap tried to bring this to McCarran's attention, he was met with silence.
