University of Central Missouri hacker pleads guilty

June 24, 2011
A 21-year-old man pleaded guilty this week to infecting computers with malware at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, prosecutors said. Daniel Fowler of Kansas City, Mo. admitted to, beginning in 2009, taking remote control of the compromised computers -- with the help of a co-conspirator -- in order to download personal data on students, alumni, faculty and staff; transfer money into their personal student accounts and attempt to change their grades. In one case, they used a thumb drive to install the keylogging trojan on a university administrator's computer Fowler faces up to 15 years in prison. His co-conspirator, Joseph Camp, 27, of New York state, who was caught after he tried t sell some of the stolen data for $35,000, is scheduled for trial in the fall, according to reports.
