The 14-year-old Aaron Bond, who was declared as ‘youngest application designer’ of Europe, has been expelled from his school for hacking the school’s computer system, reports ANI.
Aaron Bond, a computer whiz kid, was the student of King Edward VI College in Totnes,Devon. He came to limelight when he designed six applications for smartphones, and participated as a delegate at 2011 Apple conference.
According to school management, he tried to steal confidential information about students, staff and vice-principal financial data from school’s computer system. He even got success in editing the IT room booking system as well as school newsletter. However, school management soon came to know about this security breach and expelled him from school.
According to Kate Mason, school’s principal, Aaron has admitted accessing the computer system of the school on a number of occasions without permission.
“Aaron was excluded from the college in accordance with the serious nature of the offence and the college’s behaviour policy and acceptable user policy, which he had signed,” said Mason.
“I am very sorry and if I had known the consequences I never would have done it,” The Telegraph quoted Bond, as saying.
According to Kate, Aaron’s mother, her son was curious “like any school boy would have been.”
“I think the security of the school computer system should be a lot better. A 14-year-old boy should not have been able to get into the system,” said Kate. “I don’t see why they can’t give Aaron a second chance,” she added.
