... a lot of people in the UK can't even get a decent connection, even thought they have to pay for it. So why do criminals get it free anyway. I thought the objective when jailed is to take away certain 'home comfort' liberties' that make it an atonement for crimes committed. If the story is true, then that is really sad.

Well first you need to compromise a machine. Game over there and then, let alone starting to re-flash BOIS or whatever - this is just another *thing* that can be changed once you own the machine. No big surprise there.

Of course, as to your question - if you have physical access (and a black hat), then game over anyway.
