2 Birdville students hack into school district’s network

Star Telegram, September 1, 2011, By Jessamy Brown

Two students from Birdville schools hacked into a school district network server and accessed a file with 14,500 student names and social security numbers, a Birdville spokesman said Thursday. Birdville superintendent Darrell Brown on Thursday mailed a letter to families of all students in the file from the 2008-2009 school year. The security breach discovered on Tuesday involved a network server that was no longer in use. The file has been removed and the server is no longer operational, said Mark Thomas, Birdville spokesman. The students, a junior and senior, face discipline from the school district. Birdville officials are working with Haltom City police, who will decide whether criminal charges are warranted, Thomas said. http://www.star-telegram.com/2011/09/01/3329502/2-birdville-students-hack-into.html#ixzz1WozQpKA7
