Brazilian newspaper publishes photo with WiFi password for World Cup security centre

You’ll never guess what it is…


(Image credit: Correio Braziliense/

A BRAZILIAN NEWSPAPER has published the WiFi network and password for a World Cup security centre.

In a behind-the-scenes photograph as seen in Correio Braziliense, you can clearly see the words “wifi network: WORLDCUP” and “password: b5a2112014″.

The man in the photo in question is Luiz Cravo Dorea, head of the federal police’s international coordination centre, who must now be seriously regretting allowing the media in to take photographs.

And even more incredibly, this isn’t the first time an embarrassing password-related oversight has occurred amid a high-profile sports event.
