NBC's Dateline attempt to infiltrate DefCon in Las Vegas this weekend has been discovered by the convention organisers.

"Defcon staff and security were informed that NBC Dateline was sending five people with undercover cameras to film attendees. According to Priest, a member of the Defcon security team, the reporters would try to get hackers to admit to crimes on camera and then confront Defcon's founder Jeff Moss about running a convention that facilitates criminal activities," TG Daily reported.

"Determined to find the reporters, Defcon attendees have created an informal game called “Spot the Dateline” which is modeled after the “Spot the Fed” game, a staple of Defcon conventions. In Spot the Fed, attendees can win T-Shirts for spotting federal agents and bringing them up to the podium," TG noted.
