Florida International University (not law) arrests 3 for exam thefts

The Miami Herald reports today that university police at Florida International University have arrested 3 individuals in an organized plan to steal and distribute final examinations. They allege that a 30 year old alumnus, hacked into a professor's e-mail. He then entered a university room without permission and took about 5 exams. He then organized a "distribution system" involving two current upper classmen. When the university police arrested one of the students, she was carrying $860 from alleged sales of the exams. This does not seem to have affected the law school directly, but I am sure that computer security will be seriously examined in the near future.
