Prisoners Build Hidden Computers (I LOL'd)

source

Inmates built computers hidden in ceiling, connected them to prison network

Ohio prison's lax supervision was akin to "an episode from Hogan's Heroes."

Inmates at a medium-security Ohio prison secretly assembled two functioning computers, hid them in the ceiling, and connected them to the Marion Correctional Institution's network. The hard drives were loaded with pornography, a Windows proxy server, VPN, VOIP and anti-virus software, the Tor browser, password hacking and e-mail spamming tools, and the open source packet analyzer Wireshark.

That's according to a new report (PDF) from the Ohio Office of the Inspector General, which concluded that the geeky inmates obtained the parts from an onsite computer skills and electronics recycling program. The agency's IT department, according to the report, initially was alerted to a connected device, using a contractor's stolen credentials, that had "exceeded a daily Internet usage threshold." The computers were operational for about four months. After a three-week search, they were discovered above a training room closet in an area off limits to unsupervised inmates. Ultimately, the authorities traced cable from a networking switch to find the devices that were assembled with discarded computers from an Ohio aircraft parts company and an Ohio school district.

They hid it in the ceiling. They're not allowed to build anything, much less a computer that access the outside world. That's why it's called prison - it takes away freedoms. I gotta give them props for improvisation.

Next time these inmates build a computer...

They'll know to check for daily Internet usage and bandwidth usage: max / mini. Also they could have download free software that allowed them to upload/download video to a ZIP file to keep usage/bandwith down. Oh well... you live and learn until the next time lol

I don't actually follow what this means - but - anyway, they should be hung and castrated, if that's the case....
