Junior High Student Arrested For Changing Teacher’s Computer Background
A 14-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with a felony after he used an administrative password to access and change the laptop background of a teacher he didn’t like.
The Pasco County, Florida Sheriff’s Office say the boy had access to to private files and could have altered grades or stolen a look at test questions, but the boy says all he did was change the laptop background.
This isn’t the first time the teen has been in trouble. He was suspended from school for doing the same thing last year. Right now, he’s facing a 3rd degree felony and is in the process of transferring to a different school.
XP Still Ahead Of Windows 8
A full year after the end of security support for Windows XP, that operating system can still be found on 18% of computers accessing the Internet according to NetMarketShare. While Windows 8 and 8.1 combined are on about 14% of computers. Window Vista can still be found on around 2% of computers.
Windows 7 is still the leader of the pack, found on nearly 57% of computers. All Mac Operating systems combined make up about 5% of systems while Linux-based systems account for just under 1.5% of users. With a free upgrade to Windows 10 available for users of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 sometime late this summer or early fall, you’ll probably see a faster adoption rate for that operating system.
