Hackers drop site of the Campus Party, says co-founder of the event

Those interested in buying tickets for the Campus Party Brazil 2013, which will be held in Sao Paulo, had problems on Tuesday, 2 first day sales.
The event's official website was brought down by hackers in time the market would start as a protest against the prices charged to enter the event, according to co-founder Paco Ragageles on your Twitter profile.
"It is one thing protest, the other is down the site," said the Spaniard, involved in organizing the event, claiming the attack, which overloaded the servers, making access impossible for ordinary users. "It's amazing attack and attack without the right information, but justice will need to act to punish this kind of behavior," he said, vowing to go to court against the 'hackers'.
8000 tickets were put on sale. Those who hurry can, until Oct. 12, pay $ 300 to enter the event. Who already buy a ticket before October 31 will need to shell out $ 400. Since then, will be charged $ 500 to cover all entries. However, thousand of these entries are designed to 'Campuseiros' low income, who earn discounts of half or full price.
Until Monday, the host of the event, confirmed between 28 January and 3 February, was still uncertain. There was no doubt that the sixth edition of Campus Party Brazil was held in São Paulo, as the previous five times, or if, first, the Rio de Janeiro had the opportunity to receive the 'Campuseiros'. It was decided that the capital city would house again another issue.
Another problem that delayed the setting of the place and also ticket sales was caused by the elections. According Ragageles, the city of São Paulo, which usually pays the rent of the venue, can not make commitments beyond the period of his tenure, which ended up causing problems in the organization.
Attack was motivated by the prices charged for tickets, ranging from $ 300 to $ 500.
