Lagos Schools Where Hackers Are Trained by yawatide(f): 12:12pm On May 12, 2013

After last week’s exclusive story on Nigeria’s foremost hacking group, NaijaCyberHactivists, ARUKAINO UMUKORO completes the series with a story on schools where hacking is taught in Lagos State

The flyer was too good to ignore as it promised a 100 per cent job placement on completion of the course.

On visiting the computer centre, located at Allen Avenue in Ikeja, Lagos, our correspondent learnt that the training cost about N70,000 (for a six-week course) and over N200,000 (for a six-month course) on Information Security and Certified Ethical Hacking.

When he revealed his identity, the instructor declined to speak any further with our correspondent.

Such is the secrecy that surrounds schools where hacking is taught in Lagos State. A minimum of five of such schools are located in Ikeja, a commercial hub of the state.

Most of them claim to teach ethical hacking which experts describe as attacking a system on behalf of the company that owns that system, using the same methods, techniques and tools that are used by malicious hackers, but in a controlled manner with a professional services wrapper around it.

Our correspondent however got lucky when he visited New Horizons Systems Solutions Limited, Ikeja, Lagos, another computer training centre which offers CEH.

Initially, the instructors at the centre were reluctant to talk but after repeated calls and enquiries, SUNDAY PUNCH finally got in touch with the centre’s General Manager, Mr. Sunday Ayandele, via email.

“We are authorised to run CEH by the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants,” he explained, but noted there were other “non-authorised training centres running CEH courses illegally and at ridiculous amounts.”

Although there are no background checks on students, Ayandele explained that they were made ‘to sign a form’ as a way of vetting the students who take the CEH course and ensure they do not use it for illegal purposes.

@Topic,

I know some of those schools at Ikeja. .I even saw one of those adverts here on Nairaland where the amount required to pay to learn hacking is N500naira (NOT N500,000) shocked. .

Great hackers NEVER went to school(s) to learn hacking. .

Despite all the FREE hacking resources, forums, IRC channels, 'm still quite surprised people fall for these cheap scams. .

Even those schools that claim to teach Ethical Hacking (CEH) have all opened doors to yahoo guys, fraudsters and the likes..

Gone are those days having a CEH (Certified Ethical Hacking) Certificate could be likened to getting the prestigious black belt. .Not anymore. . .SMH

Yeah, no hackers learned from school. There are tons of free online resources that will teach you anything you want to know about computer science, university or paid school is not necessary.

Then read security blogs like Krebs on Security, Bruce Schneier (cryptologist), seclists.org and start going on russian hacking forums. Get the book 'Greyhat python' you can find free ebook easily. There's also metasploit books everywhere.

If you want to set up very secure web servers, routers, firewalls, wireless ect for companies then use OpenBSD. It's free, easy to use, secure by default and in high demand if you know what you're doing, and can program in C plus script in Python/Bash. Look for ebook 'Absolute OpenBSD 2' it just came out, matches OpenBSD 5.2 release.

Hardened Gentoo w/Grsecurity patch and SElinux is another good security distribution but you have to build it all yourself.
