Las Vegas - Thousands of hackers converge in Las Vegas for the annual Blackhat and Defcon conventions. THG will provide daily coverage starting this Thursday.

The Democrats in Boston aren't the only ones having a convention this week, as 5000+ computer hackers meet up in Las Vegas for two separate conventions.

The 8th annual Black Hat convention is on Wednesday and Thursday at the Ceasar's Palace. With registration fees of $1495 and up, Black Hat caters to the serious computer security professional. Past talks have delved into topics such as Modern Netware Hacking and Defeating Intrusion Detection Systems.
