It went so crazy. Even the dumb IT workers cannot find a way to just flip that switch. The IT Workers were just baiting to put Windows 8 and Google Botnet shit.

Had a bunch of portable games that I copied to a network drive. For some reason they couldn't be launched off the drive so me and the friends all copied the games folder down to the computers we were using. It was the end of the year so we spent the whole day dicking around playing games. By the end of the day the folder had been duplicated at least 100 times all over the school.
That was all well until they tried to backup the schools data (they had a few scripts and a shitty external drive, small school) and it took over 7 hours. Ended up getting called to the office over it.
Then there's the time I used all the boxes available to me at university to mine bitcoins. Managed to raise the temp on a floor by over 5C.

Mostly just randomly shutting computers off in teh library, got called in to the office for "hacking" after some bitchy librarian caught me in the terminal.
Me and some friends set up CS portable on the main backup computer senior year, so we could play whenever we wanted on any computer in the school
My friend's high school used primarily Macs and thus, had laptop carts full of MBA's. He found out some way to essentially boot the computer straight into a root terminal and create a new local administrative account for the machine so he had unlimited hardware/network access.

Oldfag checking in -- when I was in school, they dropped 100K (in 80's dollars) on getting a slew of Apple II's into the junior high and high school...
Then locked them in a room and threw away the key because they were too expensive to risk letting kids use them. Ah, school logic...
The laugh being this was SO late in the Apple II's life cycle, I had a 286 clone at home.
This was the same school system that switched from F's to E's because F had the negative connotation of failure, which is why the report cards read "E - Failure".
I can remember my old man thinking I was faking report cards because "What the hell is an E". Laugh is, it gave me the idea to...
Print fake report cards and sell them to kids at school... Laugh is I had access to a daisy-wheel printer just like the school used, and was easily able to match the cheap ass paper ... by swiping a box of it from storage.

Happens when your grades are based more on the teacher than the subject; my report card was great -- A E A E A E, with nothing in-between and no rhyme or reason with what subjects failed and which passed from year to year.
Well, other than music -- straight A's there.
Just further proved to me what a giant pile of bullshit school is after sometime around the 6th grade. They should just call it what it is:

>they have school-installed spyware that gives them remote access (like vnc), as well as keylogging

>show IT guy
it's not our property. no different than doing that on computer lab computers except we're allowed to take them home. had to turn them in when we graduate, or we can buy them and they reset to the apple default without spyware
I got a laptop from my school as well, the lockdown was pretty good but... I called the manufacturer and got the default bios password for the laptop and overrode the password they set. So I could boot from USB and after that they didn't stand a chance.
our macbooks had a firmware password, which only a few people in the state knew. there was a defect that let you bypass the firmware password by booting with one stick of ram removed, but I never really had a reason to.
Kind of, but not really.

I still wish I could have found the password to the tablet controller thing... Anyway we had to return the tablet at the end of the year and the IT department was not happy I had installed linux lol

Now, I was dumb, and I did it on my own user account, so they could see 2012lastnamefirstinitial deleted the files. I did intend to use someone else's login
>had a second file where people typed in their username and password and said it would remove their internet block, it stored it in a random garbage named text file.
High school was a much better life than I have now, and you don't hear that that much.
also, i only got 3 days of In School Suspension, 1 day taken off because I guess sitting in there and actually doing schoolwork as opposed to being a little shit in the room means I got off early on good behavior.

Back in the day, I think the only real big deal we ever managed was to upload a modified version of Quake onto the school/district network where literally anyone logged into a computer could run it, then proceeded to lag out said network for weeks. At that point I was honestly surprised they'd caught on at all. We're talking upwards of 36 people in the school playing Quake simultaneously at times, there was talk of organizing a tourney.
Besides that, all I ever did was boot machines in Edgy on occasion so I could use Open Office because I saved a document improperly.
My high school made all the admin and wifi passwords the same so as soon as the wifi password got leaked this one kid logged into the servers and messed with stuff. He only got suspended for 2 weeks.
Even better would be this applescript:delay 30
repeat forever times
set volume 10
Save as an application in Script Editor, set as startup item if you can and run it.
Good luck doing all this without someone noticing you doing it.

In 8th grade I made a batch file with notepad to open CMD. Then I thought it'd be a good idea to use netsend command, and tried to send it to only 1 other user (my friend). I fucked up and it sent it to every single user account (about 1300 students + staff). And it also came back on the persons account on on each computer in the school if they hadn't logged onto it after the netsend before.
Ended up having my account blocked, and went to see the IT coordinator. As I walked into his office he took one look at me, laughed, shook his head, unblocked my account and said "Go back to class anon..."

Net send, yep, we used that on purpose to send obnoxious messages to entire classrooms. In the end, the admins had to restrict its use.
I personally would scan the network for open telnet machines, log in to them (all HP laser printers) and disable both networking and whatever else I could find. Ended up shutting down half the printers for 2 weeks, never got caught.
Was accused of hacking for using google and wikipedia instead of the provided sites that the school had paid subscriptions to (Grolier Encyclopedia, for instance).
I'd put up copies of half-life deathmath and the original counter-strike on the shared drive, letting there be multiple deathmatches going on during the lunch periods. At one point, there was easily 3-4 games with 16/16 people. Apparently those shared files are still on that network in one way or another, 10 years later.
Let's see..., Well I had the advantage of knowing Batch and how to view and change the source of a web page, so everyone thought I was a 1337 h4x0r, I also got into circuits and electrical engineering at the time and made a bunch circuits that people were impressed with (I mean making a 1-bit adder with transistors at 13 has to count for something, right?)
I took an online psychology class in high school, and I used to use TOR to get onto Facebook and a few other sites during class. The teacher was baffled but she never yelled at me for it.
We also sneaker-netted around Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and San Andreas onto at least 40% of the school's computers. It was a small school. Looked like a Gulag. Sometimes I miss that place, and sometimes I don't miss getting lunch off a fold-up table.

Highschool was fun...
Around 2002-2003 someone discovered a nasty bug in the Windows 2000 console that if you repeatedly printed backspace character it sometimes overwrote some critical section in memory and actually BSODded the machine in less than a second. I compiled a simple program that exploited this and left it on the desktops of several computers with the title "RUN THIS EXCITING PROGRAM!", caps and all. For several weeks I observed dozens of people BSODding their computers while trying to figure out what that thing was. Some didn't learn and kept repeatedly running it.

My school had just upgraded to Win95. I found out (completely by accident) that if you went to the applications folder, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-M, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-M, ... about ten times, then Ctrl-A [Enter], the computer would instantly shit itself.
Naturally, I immediately shared this wondrous discovery with all my classmates. Y'know, for the lulz. Chaos immediately ensued, leaving me free to play Chip's Challenge completely unnoticed 'til the end of class.

Not really a school story and didn't do it in purpose but when I was in 7th grade I was at my local library waiting for my ride, I got bored and started looking up books on there computers when I accidentally type in a, this was a pretty old system they had and so if you typed in something it's going to match it with every word in every book they had. Well doing that caused it to look for every book that had the letter a in it which froze every computer on that network. Unfortunately I got caught but they didn't do anything though, took a few hours to bring them back up.
They stored all the user accounts files on a some shares I could access.
They then fucked up permissions on those, which gave me access to most of the accounts files.
Accessing the shares required the use of a shell, but they were nice enough to leave me that.

They had problems with the computers for two weeks before they stopped randomly crashing
after I spammed the router for 5 min at the start of the school year.
They had just installed win7 and thought that was the problem... one teacher did CS at uni and
knows less about programming than someone who hasn't even started yet.
I'm thinking of taking CE as she was retarded even after taking CS and I don't like python.

Would have loved to set up a discrete router but it was too far underground and nowhere near my dorm.
seniors is highschool can be 18
the only way they are underage is if this happened this year and they are of the few people that are 17 in senior year, and im sure airmouse isnt brand new...
copper ethernet cables are only good up to about 100m, past that you'd need fiber
i'm not referring to the routers, but rather the existence of underground rooms/"steam tunnels", is that normal where you live?
Yeah, many campuses (college, hospital, mental hospital) in the US were built at a time when steam was the most popular way to heat buildings, so there are steam tunnels that connect the superheated steam pipes from each building to the main steam power plant that is also located on the campus.
Pretty much any college or university built in the 19th century to the mid-20th century will have this.
I had a typing class in during my freshmen year in high school. The entire student file network was unprotected, I'd just wait until a smart kid would complete their assignment and then I'd change it up on my computer then hand it in.
I also made some class lose an entire years worth of work on Mavis Beacon simply by renaming a folder. One of my friends told me I saved his ass because he was failing.
One other time I flipped a few monitors using a hot key on the keyboard and my teacher thought the computers were broke, the IT guy was mystified by it and didn't know how to fix it.
oh yeah and I remember I got in school suspension and they put me in a small room with a computer connected to the internet. I torrented the movie Superbad and watched it with no fucks given. A few days later every student was asked to delete their big files since the schools servers were filled up.
It was a small school so it's not too surprising, no security, no hard drive space on the servers, and best of all I was friends with the IT guy at my High School.

I installed ubuntu once.
I partitioned the hard drive so that it could dual boot, but they thought it was broken.
I got off with telling them it was broken because when you went into the bios and entered a blank password 3 times it just gave you access (it actually did)
They reimaged every PC in the school (~100 or so) and changed the bios.
Turns out they all boot from the usb by default though so that technicians could reimage without knowing password. Basically they just made it easier to install ubuntu.
Another time the teacher froze my screen using remote assisstance software because I was off task.
I removed the ethernet cable and continued what I was doing.
By this time I am notorious for being a script kiddie.
Get asked how I "bypassed" it by head of department.
"If you change the slot the keyboard is in" (keyboards/mice are plugged into front io) "it unfreezes"
he buys it
They dont find a problem
They buy new remote assisstance program.
>One other time I flipped a few monitors using a hot key on the keyboard and my teacher thought the computers were broke, the IT guy was mystified by it and didn't know how to fix it.
We used to do this when I went to highschool, the teachers knew about it though, it would only fool the dumbass freshmen that would get culled by the end of the semester.
I saw that a teacher had a remote access tool for everyones computer that could freeze your screen and show all open programs a computer had open. It was a shitty tool, so for the lulz I told everyone to hit ctrl A in the shared folder and hit enter. They opened about 1000 different programs and crashed the teachers computer. heh.

Sophmore year try to go to YouTube to see if webfilters in high school is any different (my HS was a three year school not four). http results in the blocked go away screen, and https show the front page but doesn't play videos. I procreed to enter the address "https://boards.4chan.org/g/" shit works and I could browse blue boards without being blocked, but I never tried NSFW boards for obvious reasons.
School filters are retarded, yo.
my old uni worked dynamically and depended 100% on how many bad words were on the page
so if you said "fuck" too many times you indirectly banned me from viewing. basically I would join a thread and it would be great but one too many shitposts and suddenly the filter would say no more
