Student hacks Florida universitys wireless network redirects users to porn site to expose security flaws The computer engineering student says he was simply performing a public service by pointing out system vulnerabilities. The student was arrested but the university DID upgrade its wireless network following the incident. By Christine Roberts / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS school wireless systems UK Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 2:14 PM Comment Benjamin Blouin, 26, is facing a third-degree felony charge of offenses against computer users after he hacked Florida State University Panama Citys wireless network and rerouted users to the graphic shock site, Meatspin.com. A student at Florida State University Panama City is facing felony charges after he hacked the university's wireless network and rerouted users to a porn site, he says, to expose flaws in the school's security system. Police arrested Benjamin Blouin, 26, for manipulating the school's network on March 1, forcing its users to be redirected from the university's homepage to the notorious shock site, Meatspin.com, which showed a video of two men having sex, the News Herald reported. RELATED: COLIN POWELLS FACEBOOK PAGE GETS HACKED It remains unclear how long the hack lasted or how many users were shown the graphic video, but Blouin estimates that the incident was about 30 minutes long. Blouin, a computer engineering student, said the hack was his latest attempt to notify university officials that the school's wireless network, which was previously open to the public, was not secure.

Blouin added that he did not intend to send people to the raunchy site, explaining that it was a default option on his hacking "app." RELATED: MICROSOFT, PINTEREST, TUMBLR AND TWITTER ALL HACKED Despite the arrest, Blouin's efforts weren't completely futile. Florida State University Panama City has since upgraded their wireless networks and users are now required to provide a login and password to gain access to the Internet, the school's director of advancement Becky Kelly announced in a statement.

We felt if Instant could work in these locations, it could work anywhere, Qualls explained. The Aruba Instant access points (IAPs) performed flawlessly, providing the coverage and performance Springfield was looking for. With new devices including more iPads and Macs being added to the network every day, Springfields requirement for a solid wireless infrastructure has moved to the top of the districts priority list. The new Springfield wireless network is currently supporting about 2,400 devices in four buildings, and Springfield will continue to roll out Aruba IAPs to the rest of the district locations during the coming months. The district is also using Arubas AirWave Management System to monitor and manage the wireless network, allowing them to quickly identify and resolve network issues. Aruba Instant has become a popular choice for K-12 school districts like Springfield that must support an increasing number of mobile devices in their schools without the resources and funding to tackle those challenges, said Gerry Festa, director of industry solutions marketing for Aruba Networks.

Wireless networks in the enterprise and in schools




None

This is a move to 21st century learning where students can access information just in time, rather than just in case, he says. An issue that all schools face is the increased demand on computer rooms and simply not being able to supply computers to every single student. The wireless network and the BYOD opens computer access up, Hastie says. The school also has a learning management system, called RangiNet, which is support in the cloud for both parents and students. Via RangiNet, students can access resources, links to further information or simulations, at any time. Its heavily used both in the classroom and out of school, says Hastie. Another thing that the network and devices facilitate is electronic workbooks, which many subjects are moving towards now, he says. Traditionally, these books would be printed and handed out to students for a fee, but from next year, those with devices will be able to download the workbooks to their device. The school has also entered into a new printer and copy contract with Fuji Xerox. All students now have their own swipe card to release print jobs that are delivered over the wireless network to printers in the school.
