CONCORD, Calif. — A Bay Area student has been accused of hacking into his school's computer network to change grades. CBS San Francisco reports Concord police say it started with a simple e-mail from an Ygnacio Valley High School student to his teachers.

"[The suspect] made an e-mail that looked like a Mount Diablo School District site asking to log in to refresh your password or reset something and, when one of the teachers did it, he captured their log-in information," Concord police Sgt. Carl Cruz told CBS San Francisco.

Using those passwords, police say the young man hacked into the school computer and gave himself better grades as well as changing the marks of others.
