Havard Bomb Hoax Student Caught Trying To Avoid Final Exam

Recommended Posts

Clearly even the best and brightest are completely stupid: http://www.zdnet.com/harvard-bomb-hoaxer-used-tor-got-caught-anyway-7000024469/

Stupid for doing it in the first place, and stupid for thinking he couldn't be found despite his limited precautions.

Yes, he was logged into the wifi network and it isn't too difficult to detect TOR users on your network, as per this article:

Also it is very stupid to assume any form of integrity within the TOR network - both the good guys and the bad guys have set up TOR nodes , once for detecting elicit traffic and the others for doing port scans, illegal trade etc.

Indeed. The problem of the online world is that you often find that you leave a far more visible and searchable trail than offline, whilst thinking the opposite..
