NY: Student hacker arrested at Bethlehem High

Dayelin Roman reports:

A 16-year-old Bethlehem High School student was arrested last week after police said he uploaded a virus into a school computer.

Police did not release the boy’s name pending the possibility of youthful offender status, but said the school’s information technology department noticed a virus being installed on the network on Feb. 2 and contacted the School Resource Officer.

Sounds like really quick detection and action by the district’s IT department. But how did the student get access to the server? Is there another part/breach involved?
