Brazil’s health ministry said its website was hit on Friday by a hacker attack that took several systems down, including one with information about the national immunization program and another used to issue digital vaccination certificates.

The alleged hackers, calling themselves Lapsus$ Group” posted a message on the website saying that internal data had been copied and deleted. “Contact us if you want the data back,” it said, in an apparent ransomware attack.

The message, which included e-mail and Telegram contact info, had been removed by Friday afternoon, but the web page was still down, while user data in the ConectSUS app that provides Brazilians with vaccination certificates had disappeared.

The government put off for a week implementing new health requirements for travelers arriving in Brazil due to the attack.

The Planar House, designed by Studio MK27 in the Brazilian municipality of Porto Feliz, consists of two vast concrete slabs separated by pillars.

The interior is encased by a sliding glass façade which opens onto a terrace, creating an open pavilion. The roof is clad in grass, blending into the surrounding lawn and the landscape beyond.

And there’s you there with a G&T.


Na irlanda é pior.

Translation: Ireland is worse.

I have lived in Dublin since 2014. In 2016 I suffered a stroke while working as a Software Engineer. Since then I’ve been recovering and making videos for YouTube.

Some Irish friends advised me to send you my video ‘It’s Worse In Ireland’ where I get to talk about some of the the things I (and many other Brazilians) believe are worse here when compared with Brazil (my native country).

It’s not a very serious video as I mainly make comedy videos.

The Ubatuba House, built on a steep hill overlooking the Brazilian coast – a 10m x 10m x 6m high concrete box with a bottom floor veranda, first floor kitchen and second floor living area with bedrooms and bathroom. Two smaller adjacent units accommodate a parking area, custodian house, mechanical space, and swimming pool.

Quite the bunker.
