As one of the oldest and most famous university in Malaysia, UPSI was frequently facing hacking of their web application servers with their website defaced as well. Attacks were suspected to be from the outside and the inside.
External attacks were made by unauthorized parties who wanted to have access to the personal information of every student and teacher.

Internal attacks were made by students with advanced computing skills and attacked the UPSI’s servers to use it as an experiment.
