Bloomberg Law, Cyber Attack Locks Michigan Bar Exam Takers Out of Online Test:
The Michigan bar exam was the subject of a cyber attack that caused a temporary glitch for test takers, according to the software company administering the online exam.
Test takers were briefly locked out of the exam Tuesday because of a “sophisticated attack specifically aimed at the login process for the ExamSoft Portal,” Nici Sandberg, a representative for ExamSoft, told Bloomberg Law. ...
At 10 a.m., many anxiously refreshed the exam website to no avail after having been locked out. They then flooded ExamSoft’s phone help line. The glitch “left me feeling pretty rattled,” said Kerry Martin, a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School. “I felt much less in the zone.”
Michigan law school graduates became the first cohort in the country to try out a remote bar exam Tuesday.
