Two Cal State Northridge University students have been accused of hacking a professor’s computer to raise grades, order CDs and send pizza. Lena Chen and Jennifer Ngan face up to a year in prison and will be arraigned next month. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles city attorney’s office says the two students hacked the computer because they felt “the professor was unfair”.
The women apparently gained access to the computer by answering a security question and then changing the password. The pair then raised the grades of almost 300 students and gave themselves an A. According to the LA Times, the carnage didn’t stop with just grades. Chen and Ngan then ordered pizza, magazines and blank CDs and had them shipped to the professor’s home.
Cal State University police say Chen has already confessed to the accusations.
