UASD students have encountered yet another hurdle as they try to register for the 2009 semester. According to technicians at the UASD hackers have set up a false UASD web page (www.uasd.com.do), which includes a similar design to the UASD’s official site. The page was subsequently removed. The official web site is www.uasd.edu.do.
University officials had asked their colleagues at the PUCMM, which registers all URLs ending in .do to cancel the fake URL and reveal its owners. An estimated 100,000 students began pre-registration using the website yesterday. Three hundred students have already reported being duped by the fake page and this could cause chaos in the next three weeks of registration.
