Some students at my middle school once 'hacked' the blocking system and blocked Google and Wikipedia for 'Malware', then a week later blocked the entire internet for 'Porn'.

The control file for the blocking system was available over anonymous FTP with upload and download ability. It was a simple text file with one rule per line.

Those students got into BIG trouble for those pranks. Hacking school computers was grounds for expulsion.

Although the state Department of Education ordered them reinstated and ordered the school to do a full computer security audit after finding out how accessible the network was. The network administrator account was "Admin/Admin" for the username and password, and all passwords for school-use websites (which were the same as those for logging into the network) were stored in plain text in an internet-exposed database.

There were lots of fines for those oversights. Even the student information database was accessible from the internet, and it contained Social Security Numbers and other sensitive info.

It was then discovered that these flaws covered the entire district, and the District IT team and administrators were charged with several crimes (I don't remember what exactly). It was kind of a big scandal at the time and prompted the Department of Education to perform audits at all schools in the state, uncovering a lot of problems, mostly at public schools.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?

The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.

Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
