[ossig] MICROSOFT ASKS COLLEGES TO TEACH HACKING



Posted March 21, 2003 6:00 AM Pacific Time

Microsoft is working with a number of universities in several
countries to set up courses that teach students how to write
secure code, the company said Friday. The University of Leeds
in England is the first to announce such a course.

As part of an 11 week module that will start in January next
year, third-year undergraduates at the University of Leeds
will be asked to hack into software and fix any security bugs
they find, Nick Efford, senior teaching fellow at the School
of Computing, University of Leeds, said.
