    Hi,
    Have any of you people ever been caught "hacking" by the school,
    i.e. not actually hacking, but misuse of computers because as we all know schools like to call anything bad relating to computers "hacking".

    About a 2 months ago I "hacked" into the school network and changed a load of stuff (e.g. replaced the headteachers portrait with Mr T etc...) and now theyve caught on. There is a group of about 4 of us who did this, the question is do you think the school can catch us, cos im worried about being suspended since i've been caught "hacking" before. Other than that i've a perfect record with no after schools etc...
    Bear in mind the schools known about this for about a week and none of those responsible have been called to the headteachers office etc...

    Depends on how much of a troublemaker you are, as well as your grades.

    Bah, they should take it as the stupid joke it is. What you really want to watch out for is bunnin' the weed in school grounds

    The only other instance of "hacking" was when I locked out the admins from my user account (a simple right-click, properties job). Hardly reformatting the server!

    My grades are pretty good as well.
    In mocks (GCSE) I got 5 A*'s , 4 A's and 2 B's

    No because I always managed to frame someone else.
    There's not exactly anyone I could frame. All the people I really hate don't know the difference between a mouse and a keyboard. And i'd feel really guilty about it after.

    Take it like a man and tell them you did it and you're sorry. You'll get some credit for it. Or maybe they don't know who it and can't find out who did it.

    Once I did something much worse than you and all the boys in the school were called for an assembly and the headteacher wanted to know who did the crime. I was pretty damn sure that she was taking about what I had done. I was all "sweaty palms" worried about it. Then she asks for those who did it to come forward after assembly. I was on my way to the head's office when I saw a group of boys confessing to her (??), that was so annoying because I spent a good 5 mins get mentally prepared for what was going to happen. but Im not in the business of shooting myself in the foot so walked off casually.

    Why did you do the "hacking" seems a bit geeky to me, i don't see the fun in it.

    Actually I was quite lucky, the only reason I got away with it was because the idiot admins didn't label any of the computers so they didn't know who was using which one!
    Our admins aren't that smart as well, cos they only caught me last time because my idiot friend brought in a virus and put it on his user-area. This of course alerted their a/v and a quick scan of his user-area revealed much more than virus (all the games he had dloaded). A networked wide search for these games revealed them on mine as well.

    And if you want some tips on hacking (other guy), then pick a really dumbass teacher and logon as some stupid ******* u know the password of, then stick on the prog "dummylock" (search google) and alter it, this fakes the trademark win2k "computer locked" screen and steals his password when he types it in. I mean a REALLY dumbass teacher who wont get suspicous when he logs onto someone elses user area. Yeah sure this is the easyway but its practically impossible to hack passwords from win2k when syskey is running.

    Annoyed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lol. "Damn, they got punished instead of me", lucky people indeed! What exactly did you do.

    There's no way im gonna own up, being as I'll get suspended, get rejected from 6th form and wont get that new laptop ive been saving for :-(. What normally happens in these situations is that it just fades away and no-one is punished. A month later no-one remembers it.

    as long as your fellowship of four keeps it stush, there should be no problems. how could they trace it to you? are you a well known computer whizz (to phrase it annoyingly)

    Our admin at middle school used the default RM admin password. It's quite funny when a grown man (the school IT technician) is interrogating an 11 year old boy and trying to find out how the kid has done what he's done.

    That kid would have been me. :/

    I soon realised when I went to Upper school, that life is much easier if you become "chums" with the IT techs. They give you more user space, print credits, let things slide etc.

    Yer I suppose so. But i'm friendly with most of the IT teachers so I dont think they will suspect me. Also the 4 people are in different classes so the admins cant look at the records and say "hmmmm, science computer room, wed, 11:15" and then check the timetables for the class who were in there, so I think weve got off. Also as I said before theyve known for a week now (i have my sources: overhearing teachers) and they havent called me to the headmaster. i'm only worried cos its full school assembly tommorow and they will make it out to be a lot worse, vandalism etc...

    firstly, you dont get caught by school computer admins unless you are a pretty bad hacker. In your case i think you are more of a 'script-kiddy' as we say, so no harm done really. If you are really into hacking, stay as an ethical hacker.

    We kept making subtle changes to the school intranet homepage and they didn't notice. Then we put a massive pic of chuck norris and some other guy on the front page, and they went ballistic. They never found out who it was though, but since then they got a proper firm to take charge of the computers and make them much more secure.

    Yes, a cliquey bunch aren't they. Become good pals with a technician in a company and suddenly the world of free computer parts opens up!
    Exactly. Much better than trying to show-off and be a smart ass which is what some people seem to do to IT techs...

    It is quite funny as my school has a vpn, but never utilised it. But one of my friends hacked ito this-he had global admin passwords.

    And logged onto his userarea-sadly he typed his password in wrong, and it was logged. And he was caught.

    Nothing was done. Got a good *******ing though.
