Teen App Developer Expelled from School for Hacking
Aaron Bond accessed his school's room booking system, student and staff data -- and the vice principal's financial information.
The Telegraph reports that 14-year-old UK app developer Aaron Bond was recently expelled from school.
"It seems the administration at King Edward VI College in Devon weren’t too keen on Aaron hacking into the school’s systems and editing its newsletter, messing with room bookings, and poring over student and staff data," writes Geek.com's Lee Mathews. "Bond also managed to access the vice principal’s financial information."
"Bond has already released six mobile apps -- the first when he was just 13 -- and runs his own web design company," Mathews writes. "He’ll probably do just fine whether or not the College reconsiders."
