I would guess not...

It took three hacking programs less than a second -- 200 milliseconds to be exact -- to find the password to the school's computer, Reid said. It was the school secretary's name: Silvia.

I totally agree!

The key word there is "Kid" - Not Hacker so much as Script Kiddie, but then the media doesn't really know the difference. *Shrug*

What I find truly bizzare is that the Sys-Ad would make the password the name of the School's Secretary. Maybe somebody has a crush ... ^_-

well, the point is not whether or not he is a script kiddie or a hacker. The point is that his school supported him for what he did (which I am SURE they perceived as hacking) which is a rare thing.

That is a kool skool! (with lame admins, granted, but kool none-the-less)
