Press Trust of India|Nov 23, 2022
NEW DELHI: Personal details of more than 3,000 students of Kannur University have been leaked, a private cyber security agency in Kochi found, according to the Mathrubhumi report. The data was reportedly leaked following a glitch in the university’s official website.
Personal data such as name, Aadhaar number, photo and phone number of students who registered at the Kannur University between 2018 to 2022 were leaked. The issue was reported after the details of over 3,000 students surfaced on a forum of hackers, the report said.
Kannur University has filed a complaint with the cyber cell and the city police commissioner in this regard. To ensure no further data is leaked, the university has also removed the data of 2018-2022 registered students from the official website.
In other news, the Kerala High Court recently allowed a petition against the proposed appointment of the wife of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan's private secretary as a Malayalam associate professor in Kannur University.
Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan directed vice-chancellors of nine universities in the state to tender resignation in October. He also claimed that the appointments were not done as per the University Grants Commission (UGC) norms and were “politically motivated”. The tussle between governor and the state government on the appointment of vice-chancellors has been ongoing since last year May 2021.
