A note of thanks from the Jack's:

To everyone who has known and loved Barnes, or has been moved by his work and his tragic passing,

We have always known that Barnaby was a truly unique soul, who had a love of life and adventure and a generous and fiercely loyal nature that made him impossible not to love. The impact that he had on everyone he met has been highlighted this week with the overwhelming support from around the world.

We want to publicly thank everyone for the incredibly generous donations to the fund that was set up in Barnaby's honour. We are truly humbled by the support that has flooded in for us during this time. We want you all to know that the money will be used for helping to bring him back home, getting his girlfriend to New Zealand to say goodbye and to help cover costs involved with giving him the send-off he deserves. We need you all to know that your generosity will only go toward paying tribute to our Barnes. x

Thank you again. We have been overwhelmed by the incredible support during this difficult time.

We love you more than anything, Barnes. You are an amazing son, brother, boyfriend, friend. You will remain in our hearts forever.

Barnaby Jack, a universally loved, respected and magnetic force in the infosec world died on July 25, 2013 in San Francisco. Jack, a world renowned security expert, became one of the most famous hackers on the planet after a 2010 demonstration in which he forced ATMs to spit out cash, dubbed "Jackpotting. Jack's genius was finding bugs in the tiny computers that are embedded in equipment such as medical devices and banking machines. He received standing ovations at hacking conventions for his creativity and showmanship. While there are no words to ever fully capture the man that Barnaby was, this fund is here to address any needs that the family may have and allow them to choose the way in which they feel best honors their beloved son.

Any and all donations collected will be used according the wishes of the immediate family. The site will remain open for as long needed. Thank you for your patience as we continue this effort.

From the awesome FAIL Panel at DEFCON we made pancakes (Flap JACKS) in honor of Barnaby and the EFF. We split the donations in half and $1933 is what we raised for Barns' family.
