I don't think it's wise to assess the security of a system by asking the interested parties whether or not they think it's secure. As we've done in a number of studies here in the U.S., the Brazilian voting systems should be subject to an independent security evaluation that results in a public report. If you click around Halderman's page, you'll see that he's got a paper demonstrating a number of serious attacks on the Indian EVMs which are much simpler that the machines used in most of the U.S.

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
