Pupils aiming to destroy school system as "joke"
Someone just posted this on my forum in the discussions about April Fools. Pretty sure it's not a joke as they're a fairly nasty piece of work, so I figured I'd post if here in an attempt to give someone a head's up. They're from a city just north of Philadelphia, USA, according to their IP address. I do hope they get caught. :D
my AP comp sci class found our way into the system administrators account on the school computers. We are limiting ourselves to setting the school district to a domino effect shut down (as a massive cover for adjusting the template for the times new roman font that will reverse the e's when printed). There has been talk of sending a rick roll with the domino shut down but that was determined to be a little over the top... should be much fun.
We have done a bit of testing, and the shut down process actually resembles a user error that auto exits from windows so with the use of dummy accounts added to the server it should be impossible to trace.
