Student in Kentucky arrested after stealing Professors password

Recently, a student in Kentucky was arrested for hacking after he stole he Professor's username and password.  He used these credentials to log into the grade system and modified his and 4 other's grades to an A.  Unfortunately, this little lapse in judgement will likely cost the student his post secondary career and limit his potential in the future.  This also serves as a reminder to us all that our usernames and passwords should be protected at all times.  We never know who is watching and what their intentions might be.  For additional information please see the link below.
