A new distance-learning course is offering members of the public the chance to learn how to become professional computer hackers.

The http://www.computerweekly.com/Articles/2008/08/07/231769/hot-skills-ethical-hacking.htm ethical hacking courses are being offered by the International Correspondence School (ICS). Candidates will be aiming to get jobs involved in corporate and public sector anti-cybercrime operations.

The 300-hour accredited course is being operated from the school's Glasgow offices, with teaching via post and online.

The £1,800 course will see students being taught how to run denial-of-service attacks and how to create viruses, for instance.

As the skills learned could be used for criminal gain, ICS told The Guardian that it would be "operating a strict vetting procedure" for candidates.
