CeBIT attendees on Thursday fell victims to a series of well-executed hacks. Thankfully, they weren’t malicious in origin; instead, they were live demonstrations by notorious ex-hacker Kevin Mitnick.

Though Mitnick’s hacking skills once earned him a spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, he is now a world-renowned security consultant. He and his team of specialists use various methods of intrusion to infiltrate clients - including major Fortune 500 companies – and boast a 100% success rate.

Mitnick demonstrated a range of impressive hacks live on the CeBIT stage, all completed within minutes. He gained full control of targeted machines through use of weaponised USB drives, Wi-Fi access points, PDF files and more, as well as cloning wireless keycards that many companies use for building access.
