(AP) - A University of Delaware student broke into the school's computer system and gave herself passing grades in three courses, police said. Darielle Insler, 22, allegedly changed her grades in a math and a science class from Fs to As. She also is accused of changing an incomplete grade to a passing one in an education class. According to an affidavit filed by Officer Charles J. Wilson, Insler called human resources employees at the school and requested a new password for each instructor, then logged into the system. Insler also gained access to the system by guessing another teacher's password, according to court documents. Insler is charged with multiple counts of identity theft, criminal impersonation, unauthorized access of a computer system and misuse of information on a computer system. She is free on $5,500 bail awaiting trial in Delaware Superior Court. Insler, a junior from Leonia, N.J., declined to comment Monday. ``The case has not gone to court yet, so I'm not speaking about it,'' she said. Bruce Raker, manager of the university's management information service, said his office has now installed an e-mail procedure that will notify an employees when their password is changed. However, Raker said human resources should not have changed the password over the phone. Cynthia Cummings, associate vice president for campus life, said the university's security measures are being reviewed. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
