Submission + - Company offers scholarship to Dawson student who exposed security flaws (

Walking The Walk writes: The Dawson College computer science student who was expelled after discovering a security breach in a system used by students across Quebec has been offered a scholarship by the company behind the software.

"We will offer him a scholarship so he can finish his diploma in the private sector," said Edouard Taza, the president of Skytech.

Taza said he also reached out to Hamed Al-Khabaz, 20, and offered him a part-time job in information technology security.
