You are working as a designer for a university that offers a program in
Computer Science. One of the tracts is computer security. One of your
colleagues has recommended adding a course addressing network security.
In this course, students learn about the history of networks and study
network attacks that have caused significant damage to the network that
was the subject of the attack. During the second term of this two
semester course, the students are taught how to hack into a system, how
to create malware (including Trojan horses, viruses, and worms), and how
to perpetrate a DOS attack. Choose one or more of the ethical theories
discussed in Chapter 2 and combine that with research to determine
whether this course should be taught. Be sure to discuss both sides of
the issue before taking a specific side. Would it make a difference if
this was a graduate or PhD level course instead of an undergraduate
level course? Explain.
