    i think its quite funny that they even attempted it. Would be interesting to see what their grades were before and after :)

    just a thought if they were to get 20 years and $250k fine do they have to pay the fine first and do they then get taken to court while in jail because they can't pay the fine ? lol

    What a muppett. He works in the tech dept, so is at least reasonably tech savvy, and doesnt consider that hes leaving an audit trail halfway to the uk and back?

    The above case really does make you wonder and secondly if they're that smart to hack into a computer system why then worry about changing your grades?.

    It does not make sense to me to be honest:biggrin

    Onoski's on target: if he was intelligent enough to hack without being detected... he'd probably have not had any reason to change his grades in the first place. 8)

    depends what you are changing though. Everyone has subjects that they are rubbish at, even whilst they excel in others. Someone could be the best hacker in the world, but crap at languages, or philosophy. Just because they were changing their grades, doesnt mean they were not intelligent enough to hack. And there are people in the world who cant stand seeing grades below a certain level on their record, some of which dont actually care how they get those grades.

    That said, in this case, its spot on really. not that bright.

    Yep, I saw this one to in Theregister. That sets the break-in in the Pentagon in a different light. 20 years for 'just' changing your grades makes 70 years for breaking into the Pentagon small talk.

    i think America is taking a hard stance on hacking because they've been made to look weak over the years by China becoming a world power, loosing the war in Iraq, the whole terror threat/september 11th and having to barter with North Korea over their plans for nukes.
