Network intrusion; Unauthorized use of user privileges

Education // Australia

“Email servers at the University of Western Sydney, which last year announced it would hand iPads to all staff and over 10,000 incoming students, have been hacked by someone using the name ‘Anonymous’. The University is known to use Microsoft’s live@edu hosted email service. The attacker has used the University’s servers to send spam and has also subscribed students to various commercial mailing lists. . . One of those emails, signed by ‘Anonymous’ and titled ‘When will UWS stop abusing and exploiting their student body?’ protests the University’s decision to buy iPads for the student body.”
