The organisers of last weekend's hacking competition have declared a team from Brazil as the winner. The results were posted on Defacers-challenge.com, showing Brazilian defacement crew 'Perect.br' as the clear winner with 152 points, more than double that of its nearest rival.

    But the Zone-H website, which keeps a record of hacking attacks and inadvertently found itself as the scorekeeper of the competition, criticised media interest in the challenge.

    "Nothing would have happened if the media didn't pay so much attention, turning a non-case into something useful to fill the empty summer newspapers," said the website.
