Did you ever fuck with your school's computers/technology ?
In our computer lab once, I figured out that you could mount any computer on the network as a network share, without so much as a warning message.
I told a friend and we would mess with eachother's desktops, delete shortcuts and send each other lewd things.
Other kids in the class caught wind of it and they started messing with everyone's desktops, sending pictures of horses fucking.
When someone figured out the teacher's computer was also available to mount from the network, someone went in and started deleting all his icons and dropping in pictures of horses fucking.
As you can imagine, he got livid.
Everyone quickly pointed to me for starting everything, and I was banned from the computer lab for the rest of the year and I got an F in the generic "computing" elective class that I had so graciously chosen over another year of PE.
I would create images like this and set them as the texture for the "waving flag" screensaver.
Oh, and the network security was so weak, I could access anyone's files (including staff) if I knew their username (which was first initial and last name).
Not really tech-related, but it makes me laugh to think back.
>nearly end of year 11 (year you leave school in Britain)
>popular, slutty girls make folder for pictures for the yearbook
>hundreds of pictures of just them
>get some mates together
>spend a week flooding the folder with porn, gore, shoops of people and pictures of Chuck Norris
>end up with close to 250GB of pictures
>IT staff don't even realise
>popular sluts do
>we all get banned from using the computers for the rest of the year
>totally fucking worth it
We ended up using the accounts of the retarded kids for the rest of the year. Again, IT staff had no idea we had gotten access to the retarded kids' accounts and used them for 2 months.
I don't remember the exact path, but it was something like E:\users\username. All I had to do was replace my username with someone else's in Windows Explorer, and it would take me there.
Similar thing happened by accident, someone broke file permissions and everyone could access everyone elses files. To make matters worse the automounts broke as well and instead of mounting each user's home directory on login it was defaulting to the root folder where everyone's profiles were stored. I was in a programming class so everyone had a field day with this spamming each others' documents folders with all sorts of shit.
We used to steal mouse balls out of the mice at the school. Also, we set the homepages in the computer lab to "Peanutbutter Jelly Time" and turned the speakers all the way up to help wake up the class next to ours.
Every single of the PCs in school has a VNC server installed. So that the teachers can look at the students' PC.
They didn't think this one through. A student can download the VNC client and fuck with every PC in the network. Even with the teacher's PC.
This is in Germany.
all the computers at my school had a few different networked drives, one of which was accessible by everyone. Shit was great, until they installed a program that let them watch your monitor
>be 16, eight years ago
>computer lab was in library

>manage to gain access to a remote desktop software
>remote delete all system32s on the user computers
>since nobody ever shut off the user computers, over the course of 6 months i'd slowly shutdown one computer every time I'd go in there for a project
>no accounts on these computers either, just horribly locked down windows XP OS, so they couldn't track who did it
>by the end of the school year 23/30 computers had a piece of paper with "OUT OF ORDER" taped on the CRT monitor
I unlocked the guest account and pretty much downloaded every worm and backdoor trojan imaginable.
The technicians would see why it was activated and get their admin accounts loaded with viruses, which would then transmit across the network.
Basically the same thing happened like that pirate virus in Archer. All the computers received a malicious 'burning desktop' screensaver, and some people even thought their desktops were bursting into flames behind the glass.
I now work at a school. It's my job to manage all the computers here.
I no longer subscribe to the draconian lockdown strategy. Instead, we have a much simpler super-fast imaging strategy that basically means if anything goes wrong with a machine that takes more than 10 minutes to fix, it just gets reimaged in place. Which takes 10 minutes.

No, but since I was good with computer I would get blamed whenever some chucklefuck rm -rf'd a computer. Also, the student sysadmin was an incompetent macfag and hated me because I was better with computer than him, so he would blame me.
Of course. We played quite the cat-mouse-game with the sysadmin before we got caught.

I obviously chose the latter. First thing I had them do was remove the BIOS boot options and password protect the BIOS. All in all, good times were had.
Why did Windows have the most retarded elevation bypasses when using the GUI?
Anyone have that GIF of bypassing the Windows 2000 login screen by opening up the help menu, and starting up explorer.exe from the Help Viewer?
No my university computer system utilized Phantosys, which when a client is booted up, the Phantosys server will load up OS image, software and stream it to the client computer over the network, but ultimately the performance is purely based on client computer's spec. Student ID is assigned to log in the client computer.
Which mean that you can't alter the OS of the client computer because it's simply did't installed in the first place.
I wonder most university in japan did that too.
Senior prank two years ago I and a few acquaintances and some people who idolized me for whatever reason installed Ubuntu on all the computers, leaving behind some hard drives (that I got for cheap and that everyone helped buy) with the school shit on them for easy fixes.
I submitted a tip on how to fix everything in case they didn't figure it out from the two hundred random hard drives sitting around, so people generally knew it was me. Never got in any serious trouble though, and most people thought it was hilarious.

There was that time that /g/ hacked a school district in New Jersey. I can't find my screencaps, damnit.
More than enough.
I haven't been a Windows guy for years, but my knowledge from 98/2000/XP was enough to fuck with people in college for the past year.
First lemme mention that the administrators are incredibly incompetent - they have got solid hardware in every computer, Dual Core processors, 2 GB RAM, Integrated Graphics - everything a school PC would need. What do they do? Install Windows 7, with PC-Waechter cards for read only harddrives in combination with NOD32 Antivirus which hasn't been updates for years, resulting in pop up messages 15 minutes after bootup and massive slowdown. Why antivirus when you got a PC-Waechter? You don't bother updating it anyway.
They also gave the local computer User administrator rights. Making it able to uninstall iTALC temporarily (a program used by teachers to monitor and remote control students pc's)
I made a shitty Winblows batchscript into my USB-Stick autostart (yes, they did NOT disable that...) that autostarts the uninstall.exe file for iTALC. I also liked to fuck with people using the network shutdown command (every computer name in the network ends with its last byte of the IP-Address, they gave us a list of which PC has which IP after P2P introduction).
And yes, you can even shut down the teachers computer.

if I booted up in linux I could access anything on the entire school system's server. I also backtracked into their server, and was majorly disappointed to see it running Windows 2000 server. I left a text file on the desktop that said "[spoiler]yoursecuritysucks.txt[/spoiler]
That was the best I could come up with.
I later became buds with the IT admin and helped him fix everything.
I have a similar experience, though they actually had a good reason to suspect it.

One of the teachers tried that after a while, patching up things as quickly as they could.
Then they left an excel document containing every password including the headteacher's on a publicly accessible networked computer.
Which was fun and games until people started printing 100 copies of dicks from half way across the school to teachers' printers on other people's accounts.
Yes I did. I was sick of the social media and gaming in class. My brother was one of the network administrators, and I had lunch with him every week, so it was fairly easy to keep feeding information.
My school's prom hired a DJ who had an online requests page, where you could vote for what songs you wanted played. It had basically zero validation, so some friends and I flooded it with tens of thousands of votes for every song on the requestable list with "sex" in the title.
Man, the old days.

Turns out the IT guys at my high school were cool as fuck. They considered joining in a few times. I had an internship class with them and worked with them over the summer and we played Halo a lot. They just told me and my friends not to put it on again because they get pissed with the amount of support tickets they get from teachers going "DA KIDS R PLAYIN GAEMS, DO SOMETHING"

yes once in 3rd gradeI had this computer teacher is that wasn't really good at computers and he was kind of a lazy fucking asshole and he accidentally left his computer on in the computer room and I very quickly snuck over to itand I access the server is at our schools web page is hosted on and I changed every single HTML file because this is before CSS and what not right hes it in some background music from the video game and I think I got fired and that resulted in the music being stuck on the web page for the entire summer every single fucking page. this was the song.this is also the DA I give up the programming because I knew I was too tempted by the forces of evil and I enjoy doing this too much obvious that I was a black hat and that I needed she never learn how to do things or else I would get in trouble all the time and I'd probably end up in prison.

jesus fucking christ that is the longest sentence i've ever seen
either foreign or 12 years old
Got system control panel off network before they locked it down.
Access to everything in the local council. Yes, fucking council, work and pensions, everything. I never done nefarious shit there. (I actually told them from an anonymous account)
But fun stuff I did was run magnifier fullscreen on others computers, leave messages in home directories.
We also installed web servers, chat servers, file servers, hamachi.
2 got caught doing it even though I told them to delete a computers network logfiles. They fucked uuuup.
I could have deleted their logs remotely, but then they wouldn't have learned. Plus, they both have decent-ish jobs in computing industry anyway.
Last day of school I ran blackhawk downs map editor as a service at login, hidden, on all computers. Effectively halved resources.
Fixed it fairly soon since they got a sysadmin after some retard sent a global email across all netware computers on the nrtwork saying some homosexual shit if I remember correct, this is 2004, stretching as-is.
Oh, also the usual stuff, VNC, typing dicks in to word docs, spreadsheets, etc.
Sending teachers VB programs to open disc trays. Fun times.
>tfw was never smart enough to do any of this.
I did find a txt file with the list of every username and password of the school user accounts though, it was just sitting on a public network drive.
I hate when kids try to spend their time disabling VNC instead of actually doing their work.
If you do manage to disable it, what are you going to do? The teacher knows you disabled it and you're going to get moved to a different seat. It's pretty pointless.
You were most likely breaking their acceptable usage policy. As dumb as it may sound to you, that's just something they don't want you to do. Don't fuck around with other people's machines unless you have permission. And paying college tuition should not give you a sense of entitlement either.

There was this really annoying kid that sat next to me in keyboarding and every time he got up I'd switch his PSU from 120V to 240V and he'd come to the computer and full on rage because his computer kept "breaking"
It was hilarious
I also got banned from any use of technology for 2 weeks in 4th grade for "hacking" (I entered the BIOS)
If you do that on a Eurofag computer, the PSU can explode because their electricity is 240v normally. When you flip the switch to 120v, the PSU voltage is double what it's supposed to be
We had old push button intercom system in my high school, including in the bathrooms. However, because kids are twats, they disabled outgoing in the bathrooms, regardless of it being an emergency or not. I simply connected a CD player to the wiring; it wasn't removed, just detached from the button and capped, and played Queen for my senior prank, all day.
All day. They hadn't found it by the time the batteries died, so I scooped it up, pushed the wires back in.
I intended on it playing only through the office, but it instead played through the office and on every other intercom outside of classrooms.
All of the computers at my old school were on the same network so we put an emulator and a few games deep in the files so we could fuck around.
I also changed the Bios password on one and it was "broken" for well over a month. I don't even think we had an IT department
ITT: A bunch of stupid kids that think their school can afford to have a mega heug IT department to watch their faggot asses all day every day.
We don't. This is why any school worth their shit has all the computers the kids use be a thin client that resets every day.
Today some faggot script kid thought he'd be cool and install a rogue DHCP server. Caught his ass within 10 minutes, now he's expelled and facing criminal charges.
The IT department at my school consisted of one guy who did exorcisms. He was on Penn and Teller's Bullshit, for that matter.
Used to play emulators on the school computers. One day it didn't work, so I changed the name and it worked just fine.
I burned 5 ubuntu disks and put them all in and wiped the hard drive and installed them onto the machines. they didn't bother to change it until 2 years later when they updated to Windows 7 from Xp
Luckily the IT fagots in my high school where fat feminist that didn't know what they where doing, for example one time she was installing a printer on my teachers computer and she said let me go get the driver disc even though she was on the driver webpage and she couldn't figure out how to download the drivers.

Suffice to say that friend didn't speak to me for a few days
He actually came out as gay a few months later too, kek
not so much "fuck with" but my high school (New Jersey 2006- 2010) had a laptop program. My class was the first to try it out so naturally there were a lot of opportunities to fuck around... some kids managed to get HALO on the school servers for everyone to play as well as counter strike.
that was so much fun
In highschool, we had an open server for storing our files and accessing them on any computer on the school's network. Me and my friend got the idea to put some movies on there to watch in any class. However, some goody-two shoes fuck deleted them because it wasn't "appropriate for class."
When I was around 6, I kept on stealing mouse balls from the mice in the grade school computer lab.
It got into the point wherein they put glue just so we can't remove the mouse balls. Which kind of backfired whenever there's a lot of lint inside that they can't clean it.
Between grades 8 to 10, I fucked with the schools network so many times they threatened to expel me
I ended up having to "help" the IT admins for over a month just finding as many exploits and oversights as I could for them to patch
After I left, I was apparently known as the guy that "beat the system" (according to a guy I worked with that went there after me)

The IT people at our high school were pretty based, at least to the people who were taking the IT class. They used to show us all the stuff they could do at any time to fuck with students. Freshman would think they're cool for making batch scripts that make green trees in command prompt, or open a million programs, they would always call down the student, and play dumb and watch the student squirm around trying to explain what they were doing. Some times they would drag the student into our class room "for learning purposes" and we could watch while they grilled the fuckhead.

This reminds me of when I was in middle school and most of the school staff & supervisors had their own walkie talkies. One of my friends brought his which was the same frequency and started messing with them on it during lunch. He began telling them that he was at certain locations, then we'd watch the administrators all hurry there to try and find him, but then he'd tell them he was somewhere else. It was hilarious for being in 7th grade.

Found out in my Freshman year of highschool that the computers on the network had a shared folder for all computers in the entire school. It included administrative and teacher computers. Most teachers never put up anything worthwhile though, the most I ever found was a few grade books and tests.
Also in the school library they had the screen viewer program running on all of them, but for some reason they didn't restrict task manager or killing the task.
Disabling is only possible as Administrator - there might be ways to get Admin rights on Windows but I'm a Linux user so I have no idea how. The profiles aren't stored locally but on a school server, and not even the teachers are admins, only the webmaster.
My university has a printer system where you email your document to the printers cloud server and it ques it, but it won't print until you scan your student ID at the printer
My friend figured out you could plug a laptop right into the printer via ethernet and print anything you want. So we printed 500 pages with the word "test" in the middle and left them in the print tray.
After we did this they put a lock thing covering all the input ports on the printers

Our school computers were locked down pretty tight and the "IT" (Headmaster of Upper Highschool) knew everyone with the capability to fuck with school computers so it was unsafe.
We would often boot Linux and changed the wallpaper once though. I also found storage reports on a drive that let me see what files the students were keeping. Mostly hip hop music videos and games.
One time it got pretty bad we weren't allowed games on our drives and our USBs were subject to random inspections. To fix this, I taught everyone how to embed exes in word documents and hide them to fly under the radar. Of course some idiot let the teacher know and we got into trouble.
I'm in my last year of high school, (Year 13, so no, not underage b&) Someone tell me what I should do to fuck with the fat neckbeards in the techroom that just sit around and play games.
We use the novell network (Pretty hilarious).

Yes, they ran a Novell system with Windows XP.
On the login screen you could disconnect the ethernet and login and then re-connect the RJ45 and you would be granted administrator. We would use that to install every game under the sun, CS 1.5, Q3, Unreal, DOOM, Broodwar, etc.
Very fun, we also hax'd the Java teachers FTP server, lol.
it's not about fucking with school's system but when I was in university they had XP computers and the clock was wrong on all of them.
Wish I knew some admin exploits because I wasn't allowed to set them right, it bothered me to no end
I'm so jelly of you fags who got to fuck with shit.

I shit you not, word of that spread so far that I had some meathead popular guy ask me if I could hack the school's website for him and put his picture up with a fake story of him being cool. It took me at least 10 minutes to explain to him that I only edited a local file, and that I don't have access to the web servers.
Anyway, I ended up starting to experiment with Ubuntu in my senior year, and now I'm in my last year of college and exclusively use Arch. I went the freetard path instead of learning to be a skiddie/cracker.
Like I said, I took a comp sci class. It was AP Computer Science I, with Java. I fucking loved it, and it came so easily. Halfway through the year, I changed the major I was going to pursue in college from Chemistry to Comp Sci.
There were some kids in the class who had taken a year's worth of babby Java classes, and I was caught up and surpassed them in ability within about 2 weeks. I'd always finish assignments super early (talking finished in 15 mins, and we still had 45 mins left of this class + 4 more days of class time to do it).
So I just started writing CLI games and shit, and spending time on keepbusy.net.
Yeah, back in Elementary School, (and I think maybe Primary School as well,) literally all of the computers they had were Macs. This was years ago, so a lot of them were original iMacs, although even those were a tiny bit old by that point.
That was the very beginning of my hatred of Macs, BTW. When I went to Middle School, I was so thankful that they used Windows XP computers.
Yeah, I started using Ubuntu when I was in about 8th or 9th grade or something, and now, a year after I graduated high school, use Trisquel. But I'm not a full freetard, I'm okay with installing propietary software on it, it's just that I like to have my operating system be a fully free, "base," of which if I really want to have any propietary software on it, I can pick and choose what software it would be instead of have it be software that came with the operating system. Plus, I like Windows 8.1 on tablets, so, again, not fully freetard.
I believe I first heard of Linux in 7th grade or something when someone had an article in a magazine open showing people who were frustrated with Windows Vista how to switch to it.

This was in the 90s. Schools didn't have much technology where I was from. But I do remember playing this alien game. One level had like a bumper cart field. I wish I could remember the name of it.
Photobucket was never blacklisted so I would set porn as the wallpapers before I left class. I sat beside a retard so always blamed it on him. He got caught searching porn the second day of class so the teacher never suspected it was actually me.
I would email porn and death threats to my Math teacher during class. I got caught sexting some 22 year stranger on a school PC. The school had a messaging system that staff would use to communicate. I got my English teacher's login and would sit at home harassing other teachers. It took 2 days before her password was changed.

Still working there now casually while in uni. School is far more secure now.
I didn't myself, but back in HS, a buddy of mine who was in the tard room for seemingly no reason had the idea to switch the voltage input on all of the computers in the tard room so that they wouldn't technically turn on.
By the end of the year the entire room was nothing but computers with papers that said "OUT OF ORDER" on every single one of them. No one ever found out he did it.

I know nothing of programming but I still managed to get that PC to repair room for two weeks. I got away with it because classes were very chaotic and we didn't even have permanent seats or decent supervision. Alternative was to use powerpoint slide with keys locked, but that could be bypassed with restart or esc button.

Over the summer of one of my high school years, some faggot broke into the school and stole all the RAM out of the computers. I think he also stole some crts and harddrives. Little dumbass tried to hide it all under his bed and pawn it off to people.
Students files kept mounted on start up
Make a bat fileStart \\Server\Students\2011 /Copy everything to iPod 160gb
No, I ended up being free IT tech support and fixed all this faggotry.
my favorite were the computers infected with the flashdrive virii. Even though the machines were "deep frozen" they still got infected. bretty ez to fix though; boot up a livecd linux, mounted the windoze partition and deleted that shit.

I had massive Unreal Tournament and Starcraft LAN parties in HS during the early 2000s during comp sci. Sending porn to various network printers was fun too. Too bad he latter is riskier now that technology is more engrained in our culture.
TFW kids will never experience the fun of living in the computer technology transitional phase of America
Whenever using someone's credentials or accessing a network or system like that, always get written permission first from either the person whose credentials you are using or from the system administrator.
That's like Day 1 Network Security stuff.
I may or may have not flipped the red switch at the back of every dell in school.

Every now and then, I'd purposly break a computer, just so they would pay me overtime, and for a young techy, it was a load.

11th and 12 grade i had architecture and physics in the same room and we had a small computer corner with 15 pcs and they all had some programbthat would stop people from saving anything to the pc
found out password, name of school and year founded, and simply installed cs1.6 and quake 3 since those were the only games it could run enable program for freezing windows again and no tech could get it off the the computers again, our class kept it cool for 2 years having cs lan parties all day long our teacher didnt give a fuck since he was retiring our senior year

/b/ spotted. You literally have no respect for sysadmins. What "shit" do you think he has to do? All he has to do is lock everything down and have no problems. It is faggots like you that cause problems by planting keyloggers you bought off of ebay into computers and gaining access where you shouldn't.
I changed some network settings so it would show up on my home network to share files to it easier
It bricked the bloody thing until I could get it to IT, and this was the first week of summer vacation
Did this last year to a computer in the lab. I got a pic of Dan Schneider, blew it up to 50MB and then spent the next hour or so making copies of it and I filled up the entire hard drive (75GB). Once I filled it up, Windows pretty much locked up and it was just a black screen, no task bar, mouse , or anything. Just a window showing the amount of space on the hard drive. I was just sitting there sweating for about 15 min. I'm assuming Windows deleted some of the recent files I created because it then started working again.
Only other thing that pops to mind is that someone left the computer logged into their google+ account so I sent there teachers emails of buttcracks
Hah, we used to save the CS1.6 files to the student-share in multiple folders, the sysadmin found one copy once in a while but never managed to delete them all.
The machines had mandatory profiles or Deepfreeze (not sure which, just knew that applications were removed upon logoff) so it took about 10 mins to install it every class but it was pretty cash.
