Thanks Greg C. for this story. They were smart enough to hack into a computer system, but foolish enough to leave a clue behind.
Now, more than two dozen students at Highline High School are in trouble after hackers changed their grades. In some cases, those phony grades were sent to colleges.
Highline High School is proud of its high-tech learning center where kids become computer experts.
But now some of those expert students are in trouble. They hacked into a school computer system and improved their grades.
Students have been talking about it for weeks. But they didn't get away with it, only because a teacher discovered an inappropriate comment of a foul nature left in the system.
The teacher noticed the comment when she was entering grades the last week in January. The school district's computer experts were called in, and for three months, they investigated grade changes.
