ProctorTrack deactivates its service after a breach

The online proctoring service ProctorTrack has disabled access to its service after violating its parent company.

With many schools and colleges conducting distance learning, including tests, online teaching services are increasingly being used to prevent students from copying.

ProctorTrack is one such solution from Verificient used by many universities, including Rutgers, University of Western Ontario, Ohio University, Illinois State University, Purdue University and WITH.


Verificient and ProctorTrack were breached

As of yesterday, students have been receiving emails sent by the hacker from Verificient support account. This e-mail contained racist content reports and falsely stated that the company and ProctorTrack had ceased operations.

To add further damage, hackers "trolled" Verificient by defacing its website company to show the video called "Never Gonna Give You Up" about Rick Astley.

Shortly afterwards, Verificient disabled ProctorTrack's service and apologized for the hackers' messages.

From the moment they received them emails and were notified of a ProctorTrack breach, students have expressed concerns about the use of the service by school their.

The source code was leaked last month

In addition to this week's hack, the Source Code for various Verificient applications leaked last week at Twitter and Telegram.

The source code was leaked by Tillie Kottman, who also leaked the source code for dozens of companies in July and the Intel source code in August. It is not known if these two violations are related.
