London, Feb 18 : A group of students hacked their school website so their parents could not find out a message assuring parents that it will remain open despite snowfall.

The Jewish Free School posted the message on its website after snowfall began in Harrow, in northwest London, Feb 4, Daily Mail reported Saturday.

Just to make sure they wouldn't get sent to school, the hackers are then said to have sent a fake email purporting to come from the school and telling parents that the school would be closed because of the heavy snow.

The email even provided a link to a cloned version of the school's website.

According to the Jewish Chronicle many older pupils stayed away from the school on the following Monday, owing to the success of the hack and the spreading of the fake email.

The school has identified a number of pupils it believes are behind the website's hacking and at least one pupil has been suspended. (IANS)

The funny thing about this is that it probably took them more effort to actually perform the hacking and setup the fake website than it would take them if they just went to school....

But that isn't as entertaining to students (What year were these students btw?)

How did they find out who were the ones who did it, that is the question I'm pondering about...
I mean, didn't they take preventive measures before carrying out their acts?

Maybe one of them was bragging about it.

Or not really.

I could probably do something like this in an hour or so. Duplication isn't complicated at all.

I could see it costing a bit of money if they intended to do this long-term, though.

Yeah, I actually got in legal trouble for Myspace phising back when I was like 14 or 15 and Myspace was just getting big. All I did was saved the page by the "File -> Save Page As" menu link, and changed the login forms action to my script that saved the info and change a few things that were broken with images, and I scored 8k+ accounts and an Computer Crimes FBI dude at my house a few days later threatening lawsuits. Lol, whoops. But the point is, you can "clone a website" in like 20 minutes if you know what you're doing. Even less time if you're doing something like this, that is just to look like it, and not save or do anything.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
