UT: Bored student hacks into Taylorsville High School system

Marcos Ortiz reports:

A teen claimed boredom caused him to hack into a school’s computer network.

It happened during last year’s school year at Taylorsville High School.  But the case was recently unsealed by a judge.

The 18-year-old who doesn’t want his name disclosed said he has not been charged with a crime but has been told the case is still under investigation.

“I very much regret what I did,” J.D. said.  “If I could go back I definitely would stop myself and others from engaging in that sort of thing.”

The teen said he was a member of a school club called “Cyberpatriots.”
