Hacker Says He Did It

A second former University of Central Missouri student has pleaded guilty to participating in a conspiracy to hack into the Warrensburg school’s computer network.

The Kansas City Star reports that 28-year-old Joseph Camp pleaded guilty Friday to his role in the case. Under the terms of his plea agreement, he’ll receive a three-year prison sentence and pay $61,500 in restitution.
Prosecutors say Camp downloaded large amounts of data containing faculty, alumni and student information. Prosecutors said he and his co-defendant also tried to change grades and steal money from student accounts.

Camp was caught after traveling to New York in December 2009 and attempting to sell 90,000 stolen identities for $35,000.  His co-defendant is awaiting sentencing.
