A warning about "Turn-It-In" hacking

CAI Colleagues –

UCSD has recently experienced two “hacks” into instructor’s turnitin accounts. Turnitin has been helpful in tracking down the student perpetrators (at least in the first case), but I am worried that this will be a continuing problem if they don’t make some permanent and structural changes.

My question to you – have you had any of your instructor accounts hacked? If so, what was done and what did turnitin do for you?

Please just respond to me – – and I’ll compile the information and send one summary email to the listserv.

Thanks in advance,
