DEBATE TECHS USE ‘AIRCHECK’ DEVICES TO STOP MEDIA’S UNAUTHORIZED INTERNET ACCESS

Press told to pay $200 for sanctioned WiFi.

Staff at Monday night’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are using handheld “AirCheck” devices to detect unauthorized Internet use by members of the media.

The device, produced by Fluke Networks, identifies and flags both “rogue networks” and unauthorized clients.

According to Politico writer Kenneth P. Vogel, technicians are attempting to shut down hotspots and dongles used by the press in order to push them towards the event’s $200 WiFi access.

As noted by Vocative journalist Steph Haberman, the limited options also include $75 for electricity with no Internet access or $325 for Ethernet.

The Long Island Patch stated that several journalists were seen bribing Hofstra University students for access to the school’s network.

  1. That is pretty rogue. Consider, this fluke device is using WiFi to monitor this stuff. Just bring up the old Linux AirCrack program and flood the Fluke device with so many requests that it crashes…….flooding devices is easy to do!
