    If you are good enough to hack into a school system and change the headteacher's portrait for example, then surely you are good enough to hack into someone else's user account to do it from - then you won't be caught!

    LOL, we used to do this all the time! we spent ages finding ways through the network, and we made loads of user area names with tonnes of game on them too - like, quake, doom, roms etc. we also had some private desktop programs to hide the files when not in use. we used to have races to see who could finish sonic 2 levels the fastest, or finish mario fastest etc.

    ah, those were the days

    (im sure mc_watson87 and innitman_uk can comment on this too :rolleyes: )

    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.
    If you bovered to read my posts, you would see that me and a few others changed things on the school network (e.g. Our headteachers photo on the internet site to a picture of Mr T). Getting caught for this wont make me a script kiddy, even the worst sysadmin can spot a mistake like that. Also I haven't been caught yet, and probably won't im just very pessimistic.

    And yes I did from a teachers account, and since the teachers would never do that its obvisously a student.

    I Like that stuff about roms, Sonic kicks ass! There was a massive "craze" for roms at my school last year. Practically everyone in the school had sonic/streets of rage on their accounts, but the admins soon found out and gave everyone 2 days to delete them or they get suspended. Now we play them off CD's.
