A hacker recently accessed Santa Clara University's computer system to change more than 60 current and former students' grades.

"The school’s breach came to light after a 25-year-old electrical engineering student named Mark Loiseau announced on Twitter that FBI agents appeared at his off-campus apartment on Monday morning to question him," writes Wired's Kim Zetter.

"The university, located in Silicon Valley and run by the Jesuit Order, acknowledged later on its website that it had called in the FBI to investigate after a female student came forward in August to report that one of her grades had mysteriously changed on a recent transcript she had obtained," Zetter writes.
