Submission + - Congressional aide admits trying to hire hackers

denebian devil writes: The communications director for Montana's lone congressman, Todd Shriber, solicited the services of two members of attrition.org he falsely believed to be criminally minded hackers-for-hire. His goal: jacking up his college GPA. Rather than hack Shriber's GPA, the two individuals — "Lyger" and "Jericho" (a.k.a. "security curmudgeon") — posted the 22 e-mail exchange online. The aide has since been fired. Schreiber even has (for the time being, at least) his own Wikipedia page.
