Submission + - Students hack into school computer, change attendance records (

concealment writes: "Dozens of students at a California high school are facing suspension or expulsion after school officials say they got into a computer system and changed their attendance records.

Berkeley High School Principal Pasquale Scuderi said Wednesday that 50 students will be suspended and two or three expelled. The scam apparently occurred after some students were able to obtain an administrative password to the system, which was then sold to other students.

The changes to students’ attendance records occurred between October and January and meant students could skip classes or school altogether without their parents knowing."
