A teenager from Sri Lanka is in some trouble after he admitted to hacking the official website of the nation’s president to get his exams cancelled.
The kid hacked in and replaced the front page with a demand that the nation’s A‑level exams be moved.
According to a report, the message was first posted and, after being taken down, reappeared again.
The guy was arrested and will apparently face up to three years in jail and a fine of 300,000 Rupees ($2,000) if convicted.
Sure, people have skipped out on exams, but this is next level. Also, is it really necessary for him to write the exam? Can’t someone just get this kid a job as a computer tech of some sort and call it a day? I mean, the kid’s clearly smart….
That or he’ll be running the prison.
