UM Offers Course on ‘Ethical Hacking’

So much of what we hear from the UM administration about computers is scare stories, so it's nice to see something different:

Ethical hacking and countermeasures course

The goal of the ethical hacker is to help an organization take preemptive measures against malicious attacks by attacking a computer system within the legal limits. This class will immerse the student in an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack, and secure their own systems. Students will learn how intruders escalate privileges and what security steps can be taken. Students will also learn about intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows, and virus creation. This five-day course, running from Monday, July 30 to Friday, August 3, prepares individuals for the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker Exam 312-50 and will be held at the Blue Lagoon campus. For information, call 305-284-2100 or e-mail

But since when do we have a “Blue Lagoon Campus”?
