New Trier Hack Job

"The intent, according to

investigators, was to obtain grades and ACT scores to determine class

rank and share it with other students. The information was made public

by the school district in a recent memo to parents," according to this summary (Student Hacker Sought Class Rankings Data).

"According to the Chicago Tribune the student obtained student directory

information and semester grades for the current and last three

graduating classes, as well as ACT test scores for the class of 2008.

According to coverage in the Chicago Sun-Times, no data was altered or

destroyed, nor did the student copy Social Security numbers, discipline

records, or health or attendance data."

Has anyone seen the memo that NTHS sent out, or found out what happened to the kid?
