Pakistan siblings are youngest certified ethical hackers
Wednesday April 1, 2015 8:34 AM, Agencies

Following the footsteps of Arfa Karim, young brother and sister Musfira and Ahmed have proved their mettle in the computers world as they cleared exams of Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) with flying colours, GeoTV reported Monday.

Class-5 student Ahmed, 9, and his 14 years old sister Musfira have earned the honours of becoming youngest ever certified hackers of the CEH.

Belonging to a middle-class family from Lahore's Ravi Road neighbourhood, both children always wanted to pursue their careers in the Information Technology (IT).

They have expressed their desire to be part of the government's efforts to safeguard sensitive national data and websites.

Parents and teachers of the two kids are proud on their achievement but do not wish for any financial assistance from the government. However, they do want the authorities to encourage the children by providing them tours of important IT facilities available in the country.

Arfa Karim had earlier demonstrated similar skills. She became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in 2004 at the age of nine. Arfa also represented Pakistan on various international forums including the TechEd Developers Conference.

She also received the President's Award for Pride of Performance. A science park in Lahore, the Arfa Software Technology Park, was named after her. She was invited by Bill Gates to visit Microsoft Headquarters in the U.S.
