An artist from Berlin has developed a program that sniffs out nearby Google Glass devices and denies them entry to Wi-Fi networks. Julian Oliver, the designer behind what he's dubbed Glasshole.sh, told Wired that he found a unique character string in Google Glass' MAC addresses and designed the app to recognize the address when a Glass unit tries to connect to a nearby Wi-Fi network. Then, the app uses the Aircrack-NG program to send the device a deauthorization command on behalf of the network, according to Wired. (Thanks to colleague Colin Neagle for this item)
