The Crack Team!

The University of Abertay

I turned ethical hacker for a day at the University of Abertay in Dundee. You can hear what happened in The Crack Team on BBC Radio Scotland.

Create a new computer virus that can’t be detected by anti virus software or hack into a website or a mobile phone. That’s the type of task that might be set in the Ethical Hacking lab at Abertay University in Dundee where students are taught how to attack computer systems in order to protect them. I can’t claim to have picked up any new hacking skills, but I’ll be making sure my anti virus software is up to date and creating complex passwords from now on.
