Ekoparty

A mainstay for the Latin American security
community, Ekoparty burst into the limelight this year with a presentation (reported first by
Threatpost.com) on a hole in Microsoft’s ASP.NET technology that could render
the security on millions of Web sites obsolete.  Now in its sixth year,
the annual event is held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and features training
sessions, a two day conference, lock picking, war driving and other hacker
fare. Ekoparty is well worth the trip south of the Equator.
