|Canadian Student Expelled After Finding Security Flaw In School Computer System by jeronimo(m): 9:20pm On Jan 22|
Twenty-one year-old student Hamed al-Khabaz was
expelled from Montreal's Dawson College last
November after uncovering a security flaw in his
school's computer system.
While working on a mobile app that would allow
students to check their school email accounts, al-
Khabaz stumbled upon a coding issue that
jeopardised users' personal information. He
reported the issue to Dawson administrators and
ran security checks days later. Skytech, the company
responsible for the school's email software accused
al-Khabaz of a "cyber-attack". Weeks later the
university formally expelled al-Khabaz, citing a
"serious professional conduct issue".
I think the School's management has a lot to learn about ethical hacking. In this age where tech giants like google reward young geniuses who are able to find a weak point in their almost flawless systems, its a very judgement.
