An extreme black hole is one with the lowest mass consistent with a fixed charge or angular momentum. Supersymmetric black holes are necessarily extreme. Such black holes are generally believed to be classically stable. However, recently it was discovered that any extreme black hole exhibits an instability at the event horizon. I will review this discovery and discuss the nonlinear evolution of the instability.
