There is going to be a big drop in the number of ethical hackers from 
abroad taking part in ClubHack 2008, the second international convention 
of hackers to be held in Pune this weekend, on December 6 and 7.

Of the 15 foreign experts who were scheduled to come and address the 
hackers, only two are coming. The rest are dropping out citing security 
concerns after the Mumbai Terror strike. Expected to take centre stage 
at this meet is cyber terrorism.

Rohit Srivastawa, founder of ClubHack, said 15 foreign speakers — from 
Brazil, US and Egypt— were expected for the hackers’ convention.

“Now, we have only two coming for the event. Others would not come 
because of security reasons as the terrorist attack in Mumbai has forced 
them to back off. However, we will have equally talented Indian speakers 
to cover up for their absence,” he said.
