Prison Inmates Used DIY Computers To Hack Prison Network

Ever wonder what criminals do in prison? If you said "build a couple computers from scraps and then haul them 1,100 feet across prison grounds...through a security check point, take it up an elevator so they could hide the computers in the ceiling" you'd be absolutely correct. 😝

According to a report from the office of the Ohio State Inspector General, lack of supervision at the Marion Correctional Institution allowed inmates to hide two computers on a plywood board in the ceiling above a closet in a training room. Both computers were connected to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction network. Although the computers were discovered back in 2015 by a prison employee, the incident has only now been made public after the release of the Inspector General's report.
