His question is valid. I mean with Grand Juries going around and letting proscutor indict ham sandwhiches maybe olther food groups should be a little worried and cautious. I haven't weighed in on this other than I kinw people who did manage to get in to their High Schools computer and changed the note on the report cards from "If any of these Grades are incorrect please contact ***such and such a school district***" to "If any of these grades seem incorrect please contact your friendsly local hacker." This happened decades ago and in the school district it was done in they just rolled their eyes and I guess the kids who did it di get something out of
the covert technique stuff they learned from a variety of sources.


Have Fun,
Sends Steve

After reading http://www.securityfocus.com/news/11389 it made me think twice about actually going public with my school's security hole by having school notify students, parents and/or faculty at risk due to it.

I mean I didnt access any records, just knew that it was possible for someone to access my account or anyone elses. I did not even exploit the hole to steal, modify etc any records. Does this still

put me in the same boat at the USC guy? If so I am really not wanting to butt heads with the school in case they try to turn around and bite the hand that tried to help them. Even if my intentions were good, they might even make something up saying I accessed entire database or something. I have nothing to prove me otherwise since they have access to the logs. Already it seems like the school is trying to sweep the incident under the rug, so very wary as to what they might do if they were pushed into a corner and forced to go public. Anyone has any idea what I can do or should I just let this slide? I am already putting my credit report and such on fraud alert just in case, and definelty do not plan on attending this school after my degree or school year is over. A transfer is better than having me risk my data.

Regards,
CM
