Submission + - Hacker Group Breaches Thousands of University Records to Protest Higher Educ (chronicle.com)

BigVig209 writes: ""A team of hackers claims to have broken into more than 120,000 computer accounts at dozens of universities to protest what it sees as the high cost and low quality of higher education.

The group, called “Team GhostShell,” claimed responsibility on Monday for the computer attacks with a post on pastebin (http://pastebin.com/AQWhu8Ek). The post listed the universities that were the group’s targets, including Harvard University and the Universities of Cambridge and Tokyo.

Leaders of Team GhostShell called its latest attack “Project WestWind,” and they said the goal was to protest higher-education systems around the world. ""
