Police cuff US student keystroke logger
Lester Haines, The Register 2005-02-02

A Houston High School student faces a fine possible $2,000 fine or 180 days' jail after admitting rigging a keystoke logger to a teacher's PC and using it to download exams, Houston's Local 2 reports.

Fort Bend School District School spokeswoman Mary Ann Simpson said: "Sometime in mid-December, we got a tip that this student was selling test exams that had apparently come from a teacher's computer, so that's when the investigation began." Said probe ended with the unnamed 16-year-old having his collar felt by the police. He immediately confessed to the crime when confronted, was charged with a Class B misdemeanour and transferred to another school.

Police this week sent out alerts to other schools warning them of the threat of keystoke-logging ne'er-do-wells. ®
