After he earned $27,000 from selling exam questions to students, British police arrested a young man named Haider, who was studying for a master's degree in embedded systems design at the University of South Wales, but he hacked into the university's systems using "extremely sophisticated" techniques, and with the help of another individual from Libya.

Haider, a refugee in Britain, remained undetected for 18 months, until a math lecturer exposed the fraud after it became suspicious while correcting an exam in May 2019.

A British court sentenced Haider to 20 months in prison, and 9 months to the other person. In sentencing Haider, the judge said he had "a clear talent and skill", but that his actions were motivated by "financial greed."
