I Hung Around with Hackers for a Week, and Now I’m Completely Paranoid (Business Insider)


I was somewhere around the Paris Hotel on the edge of the Las Vegas Strip when the paranoia began to take hold.

I glanced down at my phone. Sitting in a talk by Lavabit CEO Ladar Levison, I noticed my Wi-Fi was left turned on, though it wasn’t connected to a network.

Was someone sniffing my phone’s data? Could I have been hacked?

I quickly turned it off and put it back in my pocket.
