Camping on the free wifi at ClubHack here in Pune.

The note in the registration booklet warns
"This is public internet at a hacker's conference, use at your own risk"

Some random notes so far :

Apparently the current market rate for a valid stolen mastercard / visa credit card number is about $2.

Malware kits have grown in popularity and effectiveness thanks in part to a market for compromised machines (zombies) to relay spam or execute DOS attacks. MPack is actually commercial software.

The business is good enough to pay for marketing. According to this speaker's analysis paid search results are 3x more likely to be malware sites.
