Among the top hackers, students of Africa

A survey by Cyberoam, a global network security provider, reveals that students at Kenyatta University, MMU and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology are among the top hackers in Africa.

The hacking attacks are a frequent phenomenon in institutions, especially toward the end of the semester, especially when the time of graduation approaches.

Students are said to be violating them university systems to change degrees, lend applications, and exchange money.

According to the study, Kenya is among the top African countries in cybercrime. It ranks fourth after Egypt, Morocco and South Africa.


Educational institutions are not the only targets.

According to Salim Idd, an Internet security expert, local banks are losing millions, as 60% of them have vulnerable systems.

An MMU student has recently violated the Tala and Branch databases by clearing all borrowers and deleting their phone numbers.
