BBC News - Alaska phishing pupils take over classroom computers
That's what you get for giving teachers the admin password, I reckon!A group of pupils at a middle school in Alaska took control of their classroom computers after phishing for administrator privileges.
They asked teachers at Schoenbar Middle School, for 12 to 13-year-olds, to enter admin names and passwords to accept a false software update, according to reports.
The pupils used those details to access and control classmates' PCs.
Judging from the inadequately briefed principal's comments, I'd guess they have no IT support within the school and it's all done at the district level.
Mr Robinson appears to be male cow defecating without any idea of what happened. And I'll place a small bet that something new will happen.Originally Posted by Alaskan Principal
