A Student Gets Jail Time For Hacking Into School Computers to Change His Grades

Remember in the movie "WarGames" when MATTHEW BRODERICK hacked into the school's computer to change his grades?  For three decades, people have been dreaming of hacking their way to straight A's.
Well, 25-year-old Roy Sun actually did it.  And now he's going to jail. Roy was an electrical engineering student at Purdue University in Indiana.  And not a very good one.  So he and another student figured out a way to hack into their professors' computers and change their grades.  First they secretly switched their professors' computer keyboards with hacker keyboards that record every key pressed.  Then they used the results to get their professors' passwords, and used the passwords to change their grades.  Roy changed eight F's and one D into A's.  The other student changed one of his girlfriend's grades.  Eventually they got caught, and both pleaded guilty to two counts of computer tampering and one count of conspiracy to commit computer tampering.  But the other fled back to Japan, where he's from, and he's been there since.  Roy was just sentenced to 90 days in jail, plus almost four years of probation after that.
