Hi Marvin. #DEFCON26
(Explanation: this guy trust transmits a zillion random WiFi "beacons" pretending to be an access-point, in order to overflow monitor products like this with data)
At #DEFCON26, this other guy is doing a brute-force attempt at broadcasting a zillion access-point names, hoping that your phone/laptop is automatically configured to connect to them.

Thread: So, for my first time, I went to #BHUSA2018 (@BlackHatEvents) and #DEFCON26. I took my main phone and laptop, and on conference day 1 went completely non-anonymous with an Android platform security team T-shirt on. Let me tell you what happened. 1/n
For context, prior to the first main conference day, I did 2 days training with @colinoflynn on power analysis and clock glitching with #ChipWhisperer and learned a ton. This has shown me how easy such hardware attacks can be today. 2/n
For those 2 days, I brought an old loaner laptop to work with the provided #VirtualBox images (which is not supported on ChromeOS at this time). Yes, I did plug in @colinoflynn's USB stick into this loaner laptop (without configured accounts). 3/n
