IRL Name: 
Barnaby Michael Douglas Jack

Barnaby Jack was a New Zealand hacker, programmer and computer security expert. He was known for his presentation at the Black Hat computer security conference in 2010, during which he exploited (also called jackpotting) two ATMs and made them dispense fake paper currency on the stage. Among his other most notable works were the exploitation of various medical devices, including pacemakers and insulin pumps.


Jack died a week before he was to give a presentation on hacking heart implants at the Black Hat 2013 conference scheduled to be held in Las Vegas.

He published the "Win32 Buffer Overflows (Location, Exploitation and Prevention)" paper in Phrack 55.


His death has a foul play (he was assassinated / killed).
