Kennesaw State student hacks system, changes grades, steals data: Police

Fox5 reports:

Police have arrested a Kennesaw State University student accused of hacking into the school’s system to change grades and steal personal data.

Cobb County Police say Chase Arthur Hughes illegally accessed the university’s Owl Express program to alter his grades and the grades of four other students. Police say he also stole the personal data of his fellow students and, at least, three professors at the university.

Hughes reportedly used his girlfriend’s Internet to hack the system between May and September.

So how did he hack/gain access? Would be nice to know. And what is KSU doing to prevent a recurrence, if anything?
