Two CSUN students charged with hacking into professor’s computer, changing grades

first_imgLOS ANGELES (AP) — Two California State University, Northridge, students were charged with hacking into a professor’s computer and changing grades. Lena Chen, 20, and Jennifer Ngan, 19, were charged with illegally accessing a computer system and other counts, misdemeanors that each carry a possible maximum sentence of a year in jail. An investigation showed the professor’s network account had been accessed without her permission and grades were assigned to nearly 300 students, prosecutor Robert Fratianne said. The professor’s campus e-mail was being forwarded to an account established by Chen and Ngan, investigators said. Prosecutors also alleged Chen and Ngan used personal identifying information found on the university system to order food, magazine subscriptions and a shipment of CDs. Chen and Ngan will be arraigned Aug. 21.
