Yemen ranked high on hacking
[27/May/2009]

SANA'A, May 27 (Saba) – An international report has put Yemen among the world's top ten countries with highest rates of computer hacking, ranking it 8th.

The report issued by the Business Software Alliance for 2008 on world programming companies noted that hacking rates in Yemen reached 89 percent.

Georgia was top and Bangladesh, Armenia, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, Azerbaijan, Moldova came higher than Yemen.

At the Arab level, Yemen was top and Libya second while a single Muslim state came below Yemen.

Computer hacking in the last year grew by 41 percent for computer programs, causing huge losses for programming companies estimated at $ 53 billion. 

Specialists and experts blame the increase in hacking on bad legislation, the absence of world programming companies representation in the country, unfit facilitations provided by global programming companies in Yemen; all these besides the absence of the people's awareness about the significance of licensing and technical support for original copies of programs.

Because of ineffective legislation to protect intellectual property and difficult economic situation with computer program users being unable to buy original programs, hacking is prevailed in Yemen, director general of the Yemeni Information Corporation Aws al-Eryani said.

In 2007, Yemen lost almost $ 13 million due to computer hacking.

In addition, another reason for the surge in hacking in Yemen is that web-hosting companies and overseers don't pay more attention to security measures to protect their websites.
