Thanks for posting Kari.
I think the sheer fact that he did it, is impressive enough.
All that kid did was to copy from the teachers login, not hardly what I would call a hack. Any computer savy kid these days could figure that out. Now a kid who's smart enough to hack through a proxy, that's what I would consider very intelligent or very stupid depending on how you view it. They would have never caught him if that was the case.

Nine year olds are smarter than people seem to think. My kid was rewriting and manipulating game files when he was 8 years old.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

All this shows me is just another case of how many computer users aren't more responsible with their user names and passwords. As the world becomes more and more dependent on computers to control instructors ect. Hopefully this 9 year old has opened the eyes of others to be more careful with this kind of information. Especially those with administrator access. Fabe

Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

Kinda reminds me of my 8th grade year (last year )
I had to demonstrate to our IT how easy it would be to access accounts on the school network (I used PowerPoint to access her documents, teehee) before she took some action and started really laying heavy on the security. Even then, the network's still not secure. Goes to show how much us kids are learning.
