"We are very sorry" - Hackers plead for forgiveness after diverting N10,000,000 only from JAMB's website

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says hackers have gained access into its intranet site and altered the profiles of its ad hoc staff.

Ishaq Oloyede, the registrar of the board, spoke on Tuesday while addressing journalists in Abuja. He said over N10 million which was set aside as allowance for the ad hoc staff was diverted.

According to him, the board uncovered the fraud after a careful investigation, which led to the arrest of one Sahabi Zubairu from Takum in Taraba state, among several others.

On how the fraudsters gained access to the profiles, Oloyede explained that they used Key Logger, a software that allows access to the profile of anyone who has logged in using a public cybercafé even after the person has logged out and gone.

He said that the site wasn’t for application to become JAMB ad hoc staff, but for JAMB ad hoc staff to supply their account details and names for payment of their allowances.

Oloyede said Zubairu deleted the names of the original ad hoc staff and their telephone numbers and substituted them with his, adding that those affected include code numbers 313 and 312.
