Top management school hacked

Cats never learn anything
You would expect a test for top management schools would use some pretty tight IT security, afterall there are some pretty clever people who need to pass to get the big money. However the Common Admission Test (CAT) website in India turned out to be packed with malware.

The CAT, which is to be conducted from October 27 to November 24, seemed to be plagued by several glitches, such as server crashes and technical errors, were reported by students.

However then it was reported by Google that the portal was hosting malware files.Whenever a user opened the website, a warning message popped up that said, "This web page at catiim.in has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on our security preferences."

The website is being banked upon by candidates who plan to appear for the examination this year for providing all details such as important dates and information about the test. Himanshu Rai of IIM-Lucknow and Chairman of the CAT-2010 Committee said that everything was ok and all registration data was safe.

Ironically the site is outsourced to a US outfit Prometric. It issued a statement saying that they had been investigating reports of the warning message displayed for the website as well as the malware files.
