This question already has an answer here:
I'm a 7th grader. The school district I'm in likes to try to make it look like they are the most secure school in the world. I discovered a major flaw in their security system. This was a shell that wasn't running bash or any other command line language I knew. This was clearly an admin-only thing but I decided to investigate.
Using a simple
run command from the
help command I was able to view everybody's password. At the time it was just the same as their username. I knew what could be done if the district's computer system was compromised. The school district only thought to keep the shell locked from grades 8-12. This leaves an opening, if some person was to get a password from a younger grade, then they could do some damage.
In 2017, I found a different shell. This time it was the CMD in Windows 8. This time it was on shell. I went and typed in
netsh. From there I could control all of the network components.
I've been thinking about writing a letter to an admin but I don't know what to say or use as any reason he should care. Should the admin, everyone else, and me be worried about this?
