SOUTH WINDSOR -- A South Windsor High School student is accused of 
hacking into the school's administrative files.

Ahmad Abouakar, 18, of 23 Wapping Ave., was arrested Wednesday. He was 
charged with unauthorized computer use and fifth-degree e-Crime. 
Abouakar was released after posting $2,500 bail and is due in Superior 
Court in Manchester on April 15.

The high school's director of technology noticed "unusual activity" on 
the school's computer network in March and alerted administrators, said 
Sgt. Scott Custer. He began to monitor the activity and eventually 
traced it to a student in the school's computer networking class.

The student, later identified as Abouakar, had hacked into an 
administrator's user file. Once he gained access, he went as far as to 
create and copy folders in an associate principal's file. He also was 
able to change other students' passwords and remotely shut down 
computers, Custer said.

Abouakar told school staff that his actions weren't malicious and that 
he "just wanted to see what he could get away with," Custer said.
