Ellch and co-presenter Dave Maynor have gone silent since then, fueling speculation that the entire presentation may have been a hoax. Ellch finally broke the silence in an email to the Daily Dave security mailing list over the weekend, and one thing is clear: he is chafing under the cone of silence which has been placed over the two of them."

i wonder, was it he who went public tv, or was it the press that jumped at a potential apple "flaw" in their image of security and "just works"?

This all started with a public demonstration at Black Hat 2006. So they definitely wanted attention and to show off this vulnerability in the public eye. They did the public demonstration with a third party wifi dongle however claimed the same exploit exists in the internal wifi as well and that they'd warned Apple. Apple later denies such exploit and more importantly denies having heard from them either. Now push come to shove they aren't providing any evidence of this exploit that has everyone in an uproar.
