Inmates Secretly Build and Network Computers while in Prison
This is kind of amazing:
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.
Clearly there’s a lot about prison security, or the lack thereof, that I don’t know. This article reveals some of it.
