The graduation path after hacking your school grades…

So you know how they say that “marijuana is a stepping-stone to heavier drugs?”

Well, it seems that hacking into your school’s computers and changing your grades leads to….

hacking your prison inmate file and changing your release date?

 

We don’t know yet if there was actually a compromise at this prison but it sure sounds like there may have been.   What kind of security policy allowed staff workstations to be so close to inmate workstations?

I guess TVs in prison aren’t enough and now our taxpayer dollars are also going towards providing computers in prison as well. Meanwhile there are still schools in this county that don’t have a budget for computers…. go figure.

Well at least the inmates can get a data entry job when they are released  – which is tomorrow I assume if they *did* manage to update their release date :/
