South Windsor Student Charged With Hacking School Network

A South Windsor High School student is accused of hacking into the school's administrative files.

Ahmad Abouakar, 18, of 23 Wapping Ave., was arrested Wednesday. He was charged with unauthorized computer use and fifth-degree e-Crime. Abouakar was released after posting $2,500 bail and is due in Superior Court in Manchester on April 15.

The high school's director of technology noticed "unusual activity" on the school's computer network in March and alerted administrators, said Sgt. Scott Custer. He began to monitor the activity and eventually traced it to a student in the school's computer networking class.

The student, later identified as Abouakar, had hacked into an administrator's user file. Once he gained access, he went as far as to create and copy folders in an associate principal's file. He also was able to change other students' passwords and remotely shut down computers, Custer said.
