re: Hacking Higher Education
I have worked on the
IT security team where I attend school, and they have several measures set up
for intrusion detection and penetration testing. Universities must keep up to date with threats
they are facing, by hiring third party red teams to try and penetrate their
systems. Not to mention these are
younger adults and maybe think they can us what they are learning and misuse it
for they own personal gains. At the very least Universities are more aware of
the threats they face so that they can better prepare for them.

Hacking Higher Education
Thanks for sharing such an integral topic to all of us readers. Hacking is the very powerful tool which is being used for negative purposes like manipulating online grades and results of universities which is such a shamful act for some students. It is required for the college to do some strict and fool proof online security measures to avoid such cases in near future. Chemistry Coursework

How to alleviate these incidents?
Hi,

Thanks for sharing such news. I have never thought of this as a possibility. Students using some open source hacking software to hack into the system and pleading guilty seems like a story from some movie. 



I had a similar incident with Keylogger. Few of my friends installed Keylogger on my laptop and I was not aware of the changes. I entered my password and userid, and a text file was generated against every key i pressed. 

As the author pointed out about the learning from hacks, I did the same. I never hand over my laptop to anyone. 

 

Thanks

Susan

re: Hacking Higher Education - reward the clever guys
When police have to get a warrant to confiscate a computer of a student believed to have been behind an attack on a system, it goes to show something could be fundermentally flawed... the student should be rewarded for finding this loophole rather than being put through such an ordeal that could have turned out a lot worse

Boas dicas David!

Nós somos muito vulneráveis a ataques cibernéticos. Com a expansão dos dispositivos móveis e expandir a sua funcionalidade, facilitou muito a nossa vida. É possível tirar fotos, fazer vídeos e enviar para a nossa família onde quer que estejam. Usando um público Wi-Fi ou uma conexão de dados. Além da facilidade de transações financeiras na palma da mão. Mas também aumentou os ataques a nossa privacidade. Grande cuidado é hora de enviar mensagens por telefone .
