Three students were caught selling quiz answers to students.  It was discovered that they had stolen and copied a master key from the janitor's office.  They then used the copy of the master key to install keylogging hardware onto the computers of four teachers.  The keylogging hardware revealed passwords, which were then used to access the central files of the school network.  It is unclear what types of information the students had access to.  They used their access to electronically change their grades slightly. The master key copy was also used to access 20 paper tests before they were given.  A student who became aware of the black market for quiz materiala reported the students.
