"The move by India’s top business schools to take their CAT entrance test online turned embarrassing after malware-infected computers left a number of students unable to take the test. Prometric, a Baltimore, Maryland, testing company hired to conduct the CAT (Common Admission Test), said this week that the testing labs faced technical difficulties mainly due to malware and viruses. It said on the CAT Web site that it has decided to reschedule the tests for the affected students.

Over 240,000 candidates registered for the CAT 2009, which was scheduled to run from Nov. 28 to Dec. 7. While the written test was held on a single day in previous years, the online test this year was spread over 10 days, giving candidates the option to choose a date and center for the test…But on the first day of the test, computer viruses and malware prevented 47 testing labs from delivering the test to candidates as scheduled." – Content courtesy of Malware messes up India’s online test for business schools | The Industry Standard
