Since I published a small research regarding to hacking Blackboard Academic Suite two years ago, I have received hundreds of emails asking for help hacking into their teacher’s account to change grades or to view quizzes solutions.
(To those who don’t know what is Blackboard, Blackboard is a very popular e-learning platform that used by American universities manage and conduct classes over the internet. Students often submit their assignments and take quizzes/tests on this web-based system.)
The number of requests sent to my mail box increases dramatically during every final exam period. Since these weeks are final exam time, my mail box is now being swamped with those kind of “help me” messages. Needless to say, I find those emails quite hilarious and would like to share with you some of them. 🙂

I’m a college student and I really need your help on “getting” my professors login and pass for blackboard. It’s been really hard for me for the past months. I’ve been really stressing on my class and it’s gotten to the point where I would have suicidal thoughts because of this one class. I’m not asking you to hack it for me. But can you help me do it? I’m not the kind of student that likes to slack off a lot, but it’s just this one class that has really been bothering me.

Sorry to disturb you, but if you can help me, I will be most appreciative.
It is any way for me to know in blackboard what is the right answer in a test teat give you 3 or 4 answers to chose from?
Or if you know some vulnerabilities that can help me with blackboard ex: change grades or delete IP address from where i give an exam.

hey whats up, I saw your post on google about hacking blackboard accounts. I was a bit confused about the process, can you just tell me the simplest way of doing it. I don’t plan on messing somebodys grades, I just need test answers before I post mine, and not worry about studying 10 hours a day then.

Chao Anh Thanh,
I just read your article on hacking Blackboard. I am in this class and forgot to post on the discussion board and it counts for a great deal of our course. I have never tried to do something like this before so I don’t know what I should do. I tried the links that are on your article but they didn’t work. I was wondering if you could help me out. I’m not trying change my grade I just want to add discussion posts but for previous days is this possible? I don’t really want to change my professors password or anything. I just want to add these posts so that I get the credit. I was doing well in the course and had an A and because of forgetting to put these posts up I’m looking at a B. The participation grade counts for so much, not that you care about all that but I would deeply appreciate it if you could help me. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

hey if you have any good up to date blackboard hacks I would pay for them. And if you need help I might be able to help.
cape fear community college. I want to hack blackboard because I’m taking a lot of online classes and want to see whats possible to do on there. I wouldn’t login to my teachers account and change my grades but it would be cool to look at other peoples essays and stuff. I have experience hacking other sites not like this though i’m more of a script kiddy than a real hacker.
