Don't take internet security tips from Brazil's World Cup security chief


The World Cup is a hugely complex event – and one that is no doubt a target of everyone from terrorists, to rogue states to hackers and cyber-criminals. So it is VERY IMPORTANT that the security is handled very carefully indeed.

Which I guess is why Luiz Dorea who appears to be in charge of World Cup security (as far as I can tell from Google Translate) had his photo taken by a Brazillian newspaper and decided to pose with the wifi code on the screen behind him.


Whoops. Here’s hoping he’s changed the password.
