Student Installs Keylogger On Teachers PC To Steal Tests

Yahoo is reporting that a high school student is facing criminal charges for allegedly hooking a device up to a teacher's computer to steal test information to sell to other students.

...the 16-year-old boy hooked up a keystroke decoder to a teacher's computer and downloaded exams in November.

"Sometime in mid-December, we got a tip that this student was selling test exams that had apparently come from a teacher's computer, so that's when the investigation began," said Mary Ann Simpson, with the Fort Bend School District.

The student confessed when he was confronted, officials said.
