Gary is quite right about the many reasons such activity is blocked, to which I mention the additional one of increased threats of malware, and the protection of the resident student (and the university) from lawsuits or criminal penalties.
I would not be surprised that somewhere in your University Catalogue or in your resident guidebook there is not something about severe academic penalties that may be brought against students attempting to override the university's security measures.
I direct attention to the forum rules, which state."No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures." This topic, therefore, is closed.
