KTLA reports that a tutor, Timothy Lance Lai, 28, allegedly showed the students how to install a keylogger on a computer -- the devices were used on more than 17 teachers' computers.
"The early investigation has identified a private tutor that we believe provided these students with a hacking device and instructed them on how to use them," the school stated.https://o1.qnsr.com/log/p.gif?;n=203;c=204660766;s=9477;x=7936;f=201812281312070;u=j;z=TIMESTAMP;a=20392931;e=i
Some students, according to KABC, are impressed. "I think it's pretty cool," student Mitch Evans said. "I know Bill Gates, I believe, used to hack into classes and put himself in the class with the most women in it when he was in high school. So I think it takes a lot of aptitude to be able to get into the system."
