Revision online has reported that an unnamed student at Chinhoyi University of Technology hacked into the institution’s database and altered his results and for other students.
The publication alleges that the accused used a free and open-source software known as SQLMap to find vulnerabilities in the exam software used by the school.
Authorities claim that the student demanded between $20-$80 USD from other students who wanted their results altered.
The student is reported to have altered his grade in a course he had failed back in December 2018 resulting in the unsuspicious university allowing the 20-year-old culprit to continue with his studies.
Revision online further rets that it is not clear how the accused was exposed.
