Here's a typical hacker.

The Chaos Computer Club, an organisation made up of hackers and security researchers, claims that its Apple TV app has been rejected by Apple because of the content of some talks that it intends to livestream.


The Register reports that talks from the organisation's Chaos Communications Congress were going to be broadcast using the club's new Apple TV app.

But Apple reportedly rejected the app because of the content of the talks and the reputation of the group.

Here are the names of the talks that Apple reportedly took offence with:

  • Hardware Attacks: Hacking chips on the (very) cheap
  • Bluetooth Hacking - The State of the Art
  • Hacking Medical Devices
  • Game Hacking & Reverse Engineering
  • Crypto-hacking Export Restrictions
  • Jailbreak: an introduction
  • Social engineering and industrial espionage
  • $ kernel-> Infect (): Creating a crypto virus Symfony2 for apps

Apple's rejection of the app won't stop anyone from tuning in and seeing these talks, however. They're still going to be broadcast live on the club's website and YouTube channel.


Business Insider contacted Apple for comment on this story and will update when we hear back.
