A law school student who allegedly tried to steal exam questions by hacking into a professor’s computer is facing disciplinary measures.

Yonsei University said the 24-year-old student, named Choi, sneaked into the professor’s office on the night of Dec. 10 and tried to embed hacking software on the computer.

He was caught by a security official while installing software that can remotely monitor a computer, the school said. The university has reported the case to the school’s board and will hold a disciplinary committee meeting next week to determine possible punishment.

The school suspects he may have been attempting to access the computers of other faculty members in order to cheat. He may face the loss of academic credits and other penalties if found guilty of misconduct, the school said.
