Three students from the Commack High School in Long Island, NY, hacked into their school's computer system during the summer, changing their grades and altering the class schedule for the upcoming school year.

All started when Daniel Soares, 17, managed to install a simple keylogger on one of the school's administrative computers. Using the data he gathered from the keylogger, an application that records a user's activity on a computer, he hacked into the high school's mainframe, and changed four of his grades (economics, history, and physics), fearing his results from the previous year weren't good enough to help him get into a top college.

Just as you'd expect a 17-years-old teen to do, the first thing he did was to brag about it to two of his friends, Alex Mosquera and Erick Vaysman, both 17.

Both asked Soares to change their grades and tweak their schedule for the upcoming year.

These modifications triggered the school system's defense system, and school staff contacted the Suffolk County police department.
