Grades changed at Seattle high schools after teacher passwords stolen

A high-tech hack has resulted in grades being altered at Seattle area high schools, according to a report by KIRO 7. Seattle Public Schools issued a memo today indicating that network log-in credentials have been stolen and “used to inappropriately access district systems.”

The hack has been going on for several weeks, and possibly longer, according to the memo.

KIRO 7 reports that the hackers used key logging devices — plugged into USB ports — to capture keystrokes. The Seattle Times reports that teachers have been asked to monitor possible grade changes, and keep an eye out for suspicious devices plugged into computers.

    It was, no doubt, David Lightman.

    Not that they needed to use the key loggers, the security is extremely flawed and simple. I was suspended once for pointing out true exploits in the system and reporting them.
