3 aussie kids suspended for "hacking" screen saver

How much of a techno-phobe do you have to be in order for this to make some sort of sense?

The year seven students were suspended from attending the The St Francis of Assisi Humpty Doo school after typing in a password that brought up a screen saver of a naked woman in a pornographic pose.

Humpty Doo?!? (man, what goes on at THAT school?)

The computer accessed was the personal laptop of a female teacher.

Whoa...I'm thinking of that early episode of "South Park" with "The Chick from Species"....

What kind of female teacher has porno on her computer anyways? She was asking for trouble.

Assuming they had permission to use the computer from the teacher, they didn't really do anything wrong.

The students didn't have permission, which is one of the reasons they got in trouble.

As to your first question, probably the same kind of teacher that does this:
