Fighting, probably

Pulling out the rugby side cos I had a barney with the coach, that was stupid in hindsight

Not punching this kid in the face who was giving me a hard time at school. In hindsight, I think I could’ve taken him 😂

A bit of a story here.
The school had this cashless system in school.
We had one balance for everything, eg dinner money, printing, paying for trips ect ect, once money had been payed into the balance you couldn't take it out again.

Although the account balance was linked between everything, the systems were completely different, ie the website to print stuff was a different website to what we used to top up dinner money.

I found the user printing control panel, we wasn't ment to access it but it wasn't blocked as it was hard to get to. I found a page which allowed you to transfer money between users. At first I tried sending £1 to someone, and low and behold when they got their dinner and their current balance came up, and there was another pound there. I was happy to find this bug.


Anyway a few months passed and someone in my class was leaving the school that week, I was telling him about the glitch, and he wondered if we could transfer money to someone even if it meant the person that sent the money went into overdraft. (overdrafts weren't a thing.. )

Anyway so he left and he gave me his account password to mess around (they didn't delete his account when he left) so one day I went onto his account he had £0.3 left. I transfered
£100 out of his account to mine, his account was now at £-99 even though overdrafts didn't exist. My account was at £100

a month after did this I asked him if his parents had got a bill, he said no, he got his parents to check and his balance was showing as £0.

So it looked like overdrafts only appear on the balance on the printing website

Anyway i was stupid and exploited this. AND I CONTINUED TO DO IT

Not going to go into details but a few weeks later pretty much my entire year had a balance of £30billion

I got in **** loads of trouble and apparently it was a nightmare for the finances team to sort
