Student Hacks Uni System To Change Grade To A First, Gets Sent To Jail hacker

Imran Uddin wasn’t happy with his final grade from the University of Birmingham, so he decided to take extreme measures to improve it – and has managed to land himself in prison.

The 25 year old received a 2:2, which he decided was simply not good enough, so hacked into the computer systems belonging to the Uni using ‘shadowing’ key-logging devices and changed his grade to a first.

Uddin probably assumed that no one would notice, or at the very least, if they did, his grade would be changed back and he would get a slap on the wrist.

Unfortunately for him, that has not turned out to be the case, with a judge jailing him for four months citing six breaches of the Computer Misuse Act. At least he can put his four months to good use and get a qualification he’s actually earned in prison.
