Europe's 'youngest app designer' expelled from school for hacking IT system

London, Fri, 09 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 9(ANI): A "computer whizzkid", who was crowned Europe's youngest application designer, has been expelled for hacking into his school's computer system.


Aaron Bond, 14, was expelled from King Edward VI College in Totnes, Devon for trying to access confidential information about staff and students and even the vice-principal's financial information.


He managed to access details about his peers and edited the IT room booking system and school newsletter before the security breach came to school management's knowledge.


The school's principal, Kate Mason, confirmed Aaron admitted accessing the school's IT system without permission on several occasions.


"Aaron was excluded from the college in accordance with the serious nature of the offence and the college's behaviour policy and acceptable user policy, which he had signed," she added.


"I am very sorry and if I had known the consequences I never would have done it," The Telegraph quoted Bond, as saying.


He claimed that he hacked computers after seeing a list of passwords displayed on a white board in the school's IT room, but the school stressed nobody has access to them.


His mother Kate, 36, said Aaron was curious "like any school boy would have been."


"I think the security of the school computer system should be a lot better. A 14-year-old boy should not have been able to get into the system.I don't see why they can't give Aaron a second chance," she added.


Bond, who has designed six applications used on smartphones and is the managing director of his own web design company. He was among hand-picked delegates at the 2011 Apple conference. (ANI)
