This one seems unbelievable, but it is a true story, with names and all.
Apparently, the Communications Director for Montana's Congressman Denny Rehberg solicited "hackers" to break into the computer system at Texas Christian University and change his grades (so they would look better when he eventually ran for office, I presume). The hackers posted the email exchange instead.
After reading that complete and unbelievable exchange of emails, I have some (probably rethoric) questions:
1. How come someone with such a poor understanding of the basics of how systems works can be "Director of Communications"?
Thanks Mauricio for sending the lead to the original article, posted on ¨Schneier on Security¨
