Michelle Madigan: Paying the price for infiltrating the infiltrators

It might not be a career ending move, but NBC's associate producer Michelle Madigan has learned the hard way what happens when you try to perform an amateur undercover operation at a Hacker's conference.

Madigan, who had earlier refused an offer for a legitimate press pass, instead decided to go in with a hidden camera with the intention of gathering incriminating information against the hackers.

As you will see at around 1 minute into the video below, a conference organiser outed her in a room full of the very people she was trying to collect information against.

"It came to our attention that you know, could be there are people here under false identity, or pretending to be something they're not. It came to our attention that a ah, a reporter might be here with a hidden pinhole camera, not as press, recording people for a piece on hiring hackers"

From that point on it gets ugly. She was forced to flee the building, the press in full pursuit.

Reminds me of Ray Martin when they turned the cameras on him. It's ok for a reporter to take pictures of *you* when they want to but they never seem to agree it's ok for the tables to turn...
