    What exactly is the charge called? Where in the law covers computer related crimes?

    Once at school, I came accross a folder which was open to all users which contained every user name and password for the school system, along with every IP address for every server. There were also games in the folder. Some associates copied the content to their own personal space, the staff realised and someone told the headmaster I was the one who had found the folder and shown it to others.

    It was a load of rubbish, we only wanted to play on the games and the staff should have made the folfer more secure. The school had to reset every IP address and give everyone a new password.

    This IT guy who was seriously full of himself mentioned that my actions could have been seen as criminal but nothing happened
