So I was in Sao Paulo this week trying to investigate why exactly Brazil is the largest source of new banking trojans in the world. After a day of meeting with local banks, I heard about an interesting event underway in Parque Ibirapuera.
A local fair center was hosting Campus Party Brazil — a massive LAN party. So of course I had to pay it a visit.
The event resembled the infamous Assembly party in many ways — with some notable differences. There were a few thousand tents in which the party people were sleeping. Nobody was writing demos. There was an ongoing series of lectures going on — I noticed one was about using Nepenthes. The party lasted a week. And the most astonishing part — check out the individuals that are endorsing this event: Campus Party endorsers.
Below are some random photos I snapped at the party.
Thanks to Marcelo (hackerteen.com.br) and Rodrigo for helping me to hook up with Campus Party!
