High-Tech Delinquency Thwarted by Low-Tech Save

According to a recent article in the San Jose Mercury News, a group of Santa Clara County, CA, high school students allegedly hacked into the school’s computer system to access passwords that allowed them a peek at their upcoming final exams. How is it we’re even aware? A student uninvolved in the offense found a piece of paper in the library with the passwords written on it, and turned it over to the librarian. Shwa-Zing—one for the library!
