Expulsion for ‘hackers’ who ‘changed their marks’
A school in California, US, has expelled 11 students after they were accused of hacking teachers’ computers and changing their marks. It is believed that “keyloggers” – devices or software that record the keystrokes of people using a computer – were used to help students gain access. Police want to interview a 28-year-old private tutor in connection with the incident. The school, Corona Del Mar High in Newport Beach, said it was investigating the scope of the cheating scandal and is reportedly re-examining 750,000 grades.
