A chinese graduate student has been accused by the University of using key-logging software to log into nearly 60 students’ and professors’ email and private IFS space to send fradulant emails and look at final exams. The 24-year old student, Ning Ma, faces up to 5 years in prison for the violations. Key-loggers, once installed on a computer, secretly record all keystrokes typed on the keyboard, which are either stored or sent electronically to the hacker.
