Canadian college student finds major security exploit in the school’s network, tells the school, gets expelled
If you were skilled in programming and networking and you discovered a critical flaw in your university’s network, a flaw that would have exposed the personal data of over 250,000 students, you would think the right thing to do would be to inform the school so they can fix it. Well that’s what Ahmed Al-Khabaz from Montreal’s Dawson College thought, and for his trouble, the school expelled him. In the meantime, the news has gotten Mr. Al-Khabaz tons of job offers, even if the college refuses to reinstate him.
This awesome Cylon moose was spotted outside the Blue Moose Tavern on Rt. 9 near Lake George outside Montreal by BoingBoing reader BoneDoggie. Gotta love all the small details and the care that went into making this thing. Also note how it’s thoroughly bolted down to prevent it from murdering patrons of the restaurant. Safety first.
