>18, last year of high school
>we're in software class, learning about packets and whatnot
>we install a packetsniffer, tell the teacher it can intercept packages in LAN
>teacher tries from a different computer, we get his password (was the name of his residence building)
>he's watching the entire time
>next day, decides someone must have tampered with his files
>police come to the school, single me out because i'm the one who installed it
>get off with a slap on the wrist
>entire class has to make a 2 page report on hacking

they all look at me like i'm the bad guy
but that's ok, they need people like me,
they need people like me so they can point their fingers and say: "that's the bad guy"

whether or not you are able to install a packet sniffer isn't the issue; it is illigal to do it on a network that you dont own or have control of. So technically yeah they can call the cops. so should the school have made it harder to do, of course. At the same time, it's still illegal for u to do that. So you could have had a lot of fun doing a prank like that (if u didnt show a teacher that you could) but instead u basically confessed to a crime.

well no, this is gray area as i see it..
the teacher was supervising the entire time and everyone who typed their passwords, knew it was going to be intercepted.. i made this well aware before he did this. this was in no way meant to steal any kind of data or do harm.

companies often hire white hat hackers to test the security of their system.. other than that i didn't get paid for it, i don't see how my use of the software was any different than that..

it was 8 years ago, it was a fairly small high school, i don't think they had much of an IT-department back then..

we could even send messages to every computer, including the television screens which were looping powerpoints..

you're all a bunch of ******* assholes, you know why?
because you don't have the guts to be what you wanna be.
so, what does that make you? good?
you're not good, you just know how to hide, how to lie.
ME, i don't have that quality, ME, i always tell the truth. even when i lie.
so say goodnight to the bad guy.

last time you're gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you...

scarface bad guy quote, so wrong movie, but thumbed anyway, thanks :)

your definitely in high school, I can tell because trolls were around since USENETS jackass.

Against Missouri law you say?    
   
Well, according to Missouri Computer Crime Laws (Sections 537.525, 569.094, et seq.) a class A misdemeanor is tampering with computer equipment and/or tampering with computer users. Neither of which the students did.    
   
A felony is tampering with computer equipment with purpose to scheme, defraud, or obtain property. None of which the students did either.    
   
Therefore, the acts in question were not against the law (they were pretty harmless) and if the case went to court, the responsibility would ultimately fall on the website owners for not fixing the glitch.    
   
I love law.

One time in 7th grade computer lab, I discovered that pressing ctrl+alt+del on windows xp gave me the option to change my password (which had been restricted and everyone in the grade locked to have the same password which was our graduating year 2012), so I just changed it to something else and didn't think much of it until around a week later, the teacher was trying to demonstrate something in front of the class and wanted to log into someone's account on the big screen to show us. I was sitting right next to her so she just asked for my username, and when the default password didn't work she sent me straight to the superintendent's office and literally almost called the police because--and these were her words on the phone to the office--"HE HACKED INTO THE SCHOOL'S MAINFRAME AND BYPASSED ALL THE SECURITY!!" Of course I explained what I actually did to the superintendent and he practically admitted the teacher was a nut, good times.

Hacking would be unauthorized entry into the school website using PHP syntax to alter the page contents. What you did is what we call "exploiting".   
It's not your fault for being smarter than the average Joe. And last I checked that's not breaking the law.

My thoughts exactly. You can't call something hacking just because someone did something you didn't want them to do. Especially when poor programming is to blame. Exploitation and hacking are on two completely different levels.

It's probably by number. If it's a school of less than 890 students, then something might seem off.
