Nah. It's not that bad, it's just that I already had bad attendance and my old man was asked to come to the school a lot. I brought that on myself.
Also we are bros now. But it was hard for him to understand that I am weird and people pay me for it.
Just keep doing your shit, anon.
Disgusting anon. I used to buy lolipops and sell them at 2x price at school. This one kid thought that was illegal. Ripping people off is one thing but giving the content creator nothing in return is plain mean.

serves you right for being a little shit. I'd have kept that shit to myself and if anyone accused me hacking, I'd call them a fucking idiot.

Full Administrative access to the server. Not sure if it was Domain Admin or not. Honestly didn't know the difference at the time.

School was funny. Shithole though
I had a friend like the guy in OP pic. Didn't drink. Just smoked mad weed and ate diazepam. One Christmas, I went with him to pick up a puppy that was to be a present. He was stoned, as usual. Lost it on a snow road and rolled the car with us and the puppy in it.
The puppy, naturally, had been car sick in the box he was in, in the back seat. So, as the car went a rollin' puppy and puppy vomit went rolling too. Puppy was ok though.
We climbed out of the car covered in vomit and some passing guys on the way to a Christmas party helped us roll the car back onto it's wheels. Then we drove home with my friend hanging out the window like Ace Ventura so he could see where the fuck he was going because the fucking roof was caved in, the windscreen was completely shattered but still somewhat in place and we had no lights.

What state? I remember when I went to HS there was Halo CE along with a bunch of other games, and no one knew where they came from, only that our county's disk image came from an image taken from a particular school, so someone must have put a bunch of games on that image that then got copied to a ton of schools in the area

But I really did get arrested for editing config files
In high school I made a website that spoofed emails for people. Unfortunately a teacher overheard me bragging about it and I had to speak with the vice principal. Fortunately I managed to get away with it somehow despite sending out emails as faculty.
Besides that I would edit code from the command line and tell people I was hacking. Standard script kiddie stuff.

It was the late 1990s. UK. I was only 15 at the time so I wasn't driving it back. He was 17 and not long after passing his test. And he wasn't speeding or anything. Just a shit bit of luck on a slippery road. He just took it even slower on the way back than we had been.

I used to work for a big company doing phone support. There was this dude that would go around blatantly selling warez CD's to everyone. None of the upper stuff fucking cared.

Kids were actually offering me money for games and shit but I knew it was illegal and wrong so I just gave them games for free (they only provided the CD/DVD).
I always made my .isos properly structured and with everything needed (cracks, serials, updates, etc...) so they were top notch and ready to use.
Then this asshole comes with a shitty CS 1.6 with no bots and full of bloat (the bloat that some crackers put) and demands 10€ for it.

When I was 15 I used to send keyloggers and password stealers over MSN and told the people it was a new update.
It never really worked well. Guessing the secret question to get into email accounts was easier.
But once I could enter someones email account and MSN I did nothing with it because I had no purpose for doing it, besides 'hacking'.
Some of those loggers worked by sending commands over MSN chat, after which the requested information was pasted in the chat window. I still dont know if the other person could see my commands or not.
This is the most fascinating thread I've read here.

So much this. I'm 19 and only recently (well, 3 years ago, still remember it well) did GCSE in iMedia, CS and IT. Holy shit the only interesting one was CS, but fuck it was prolly worth suiciding through the other 2 for muh qualifications. Fucking I.T. we were literally learning spreadsheets through both years of GCSE, my teacher was LITERALLY a 50-something year old feminist who looked 80, all she ever talked about was women in tech, meanwhile she'd get lost while doing spreadsheets.
Then there was iMedia. Didn't get into media studies so I picked this shit. It was better than IT, we did photoshop and shit, at least our teacher was pretty relaxed, this young Jamaican woman who was chill as fuck was our teacher. But it was still pass-out worthy in terms of the actual course, did more filling in sheets with inconsistent info about definitions of words like vector than any work.
And the only reason CS was cool was because our teacher was a French dude who was almost like a /g/entooman in the best way. He knew his shit and would constantly fuck with the IT guys. He liked me cause I was the only one who knew code from home and stuff like that. The other CS class had the same teacher I had for IT. Needless to say it was cancer

I honestly believe this is how this shit should be dealt with.
I've never really come across a kid who just wants to do actual damage to a server. Perhaps he does but he doesn't see consequence like an adult.
Most of the time, he's just learning and experimenting and giving him the opportunity to be guided is huge.
Yeah shit was easy. At one point we had to do java but the shitty IT fags refused to install JDK and eclipse on PCs, so our CS teacher got them to set up VMs with vista to do it. I then proceeded to install backtrack, android and other linux distros on virtualbox (they left it unsecured completely). My CS teacher just laughed when he saw it, he was such a bro.
I'l participate instead of studying for finals

> The key is 13 digits long with the first 12 digits starting from the left being used to determine the 13th digit. If the 13th digit is correct then installation proceeds else there is an error message. If one where to "lose" the CD-key, then it is possible to randomly put in the first 12 digits while trying all digits 0 through 9 for the 13th one.

I also did this back in the day thinking I was some god among men for a while
I have problems with handwriting, twitchy hands and "disgraphia" whatever the fuck that is, essentially make my handwriting unreadable. I'm a great typist so i was put on the special needs register (at the same time as the gifted and talented register which caused problems) and allowed to bring a laptop. The spacktard room was just a room reserved for all the nutters at break times. But i could go there and play games on my laptop with my friend so yeah.
Honestly the school was really shitty about it. I was getting A's in all three of my sciences but they put me in for lower tier exams purely on the assumption that i was on the special needs register so i must be an idiot. Had to fight tooth and nail for them to change it too.
Mannerisms like that are 4chan's embedded newfag detectors. To anyone who is a regular here, you skim over it, it's processed as nothing and you continue on. Newfags don't get it, so expose themselves.
Exact same thing with 'turn 360 and walk away' to anyone regular, it makes perfect sense as they're used to it, newfags on the other hand are too new to understand.
I only got the option to take one GCSE. GCSE I.T (Im 20). It was awfull. I ended up getting a D overall because we were never even given the last exam. It was that much of a shit show.

well the FBI stuff is basically "blah blah, defacing websites, blah blah you can't hold them ransom"
then one of the friends in our group managed to deface a congressmans website as well as the girl scouts of america. this was back when defacing sites was all the rage
there isn't much story tbh

Yeah, the worst part of this system is that it's so inconsistent. The grades don't mean shit because every school seems to do shit differently, it just doesn't work.
My IT teacher fucking hated me even though my grades were consistently the best. I guess it was because I would fuck around all lesson, but I got the shit done, and didn't distract others really, just one person who was muh bezzie who would fuck around either way.
