In the recent years many advances have been made in the mechanism of providing on-line instruction, thus the need for security is growing. To achieve a good level of security, there are many important elements that must be taken into account: authentication, access control, data integrity. In this paper we will try to investigate the information security threats within e-learning environments. This paper highlights some key security issues that must be taken into consideration in developing and using an e-learning platform. It focuses on vulnerabilities in relation to the application system and we will not cover the vulnerabilities in terms of host and network in e-learning.
