Distance learning makes universities more vulnerable to cyberattack

  • It does kind of harken back to the beginning of DDoS, over 20 years ago, where actually on the beginnings of the internet, it was largely educational institutions and research institutions that would have communications between each other to facilitate the exchange of large files, research, etc.
  • And in those days, one university would attack another university just to kind of prove that they could, and it was more of like a War Games that would happen between graduate students, or even professors in universities.
  • Today, that’s become a lot more commercial.
