High School Student Earns A In Hacking
from the good-for-him dept
A high school junior decided it would be a fun project for school to see if he could hack into the schools computers and change his grades. Of course, to make it a legitimate project, he at least asked the school first, and they gave him the okay. He found that it was pretty easy to break into the system, and also to change his grades. The problem was that he was already a straight-A student, so he could only adjust his grades downward. The straight-As are going to continue as he received an A for this project, as well. The school is now trying to make their computer system more secure. Of course, now the government will probably crack down on this kid and try to throw him in jail for breaking one of these random laws they've passed recently.
