Melbourne Teen Accused Of Hacking High School

Some pretty serious allegations being leveled at a Melbourne teenager, who is accused of hacking into a school's IT system and accessing the personal information of staff and fellow students.

Victorian's education department has confirmed a Camberwell High School student is being investigated by police after allegedly getting "unauthorised access" to the school's IT network but there was no evidence the information was shared online.

The department said the incident was different to a recent IT breach at Blackburn High School, where hackers sent phishing emails to parents pretending to be from the principal.

More to come.
