LOL A hacker conference was certainly the wrong place to install a fake ATM.

Couldn't they track the culprit by examining the installed device?

Not really. Tracking him by the device would only work if he bought it by credit card. Surveillance cameras, if any, would be the way to go. That being said, they wouldn't spend money on such an investigation unless a lot of fraud actually took place.

It was probably someone who knew it was going down and wanted to see how many professionals they could catch sleeping.
