UK university offers first hacking degree

Abertay to launch BSc (Hons) in Ethical Hacking & Countermeasures
Clement James, vnunet.com 21 Jun 2006

Abertay University in Dundee will launch the UK's first 'ethical hacking' course in September in a bid to train more white hat hackers to fight the growing threat of cyber-crime.

See http://www.vnunet.co...rsity-offers-hacking for the full story.

It's not a spoof either ... see

Nice! I think this is a very good idea. It will be interesting to see if others follow this lead and if it ultimately has any positive impact. We could certainly use more fighting on the "good side"!
