Amidst the ongoing confusion, the University of Mumbai is yet to offer an advisory for the students who changed privacy settings and installed an unsecured software which is now defunct.

The exam application developed by Littlemore Innovation Labs and used by the Institute of Distance and Open Learning was not listed anywhere on the Playstore, however, it was sent in the mail to at least 40,000 exam takers. With regards to the recent fiasco with conducting the examinations, Mumbai University is now said to be looking for an alternative option, leaving the students in limbo.

The Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) had earlier postponed their examinations after a “cyber-attack” on the exam server. The papers were earlier to be held on October 6 and 7. However, IDOL postponed the final-year examinations for the arts, commerce and science streams with no new dates for conducting the examinations.

As per reports, the dates of these examinations will be fixed soon so as not to cause any academic loss to the students. Also, those dates will be displayed on the university's website. However, according to sources, as a cyber-attack has been detected on the online test server, the university will file a complaint regarding the same.
