The Deputy Director hacked the education management Server of Ulyanovsk

The Prosecutor’s Office of the Ulyanovsk region reported an extraordinary case in which an employee of an educational institution became a hacker.

According to the Prosecutor’s office, the man knew that he had no right to any actions with the information stored on the Management Servers. However, he gained access to the Server of the Education Department of the Ulyanovsk Administration.

Namely, he got access to the data containing personal data of pupils, parents and employees of Ulyanovsk schools and deleted them. These actions led to the failure of the structural units of the Education Department.

Moreover, he found on the Internet a malicious computer program designed to neutralize computer information protection tools and installed it on the hard magnetic disk of the service computer. Thus, he managed to find password-code information to the education management Server.

Finally, the former Deputy Director of the school stopped the work of the structural units of the Education Department.

The man was exposed by the staff of the regional FSB. The suspect explained his actions as revenge to the authority for unfair actions against him. The man was charged with imprisonment for up to 5 years.
