They claim they have destroyed the information and haven't given it out, but the SSA and FTC have been alerted for good measure. While they claim their motive was to prove that the breach could take place and no malice was involved, they face possible school disciplinary action and criminal charges."
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be
lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
