This provides some new details to the story from last week on how the Lower Merion School District/Harriton High School used compulsory school laptops to monitor students at home. Some network admin named Mike Perbix is the evil fucktard responsible for maintaining the school district sanctioned installation of LANRev/Absolute Manage, a very comprehensive (but insecurely built) software package used for monitoring the school provided Macbooks.

The story was uncovered after a student was suspended for “using drugs” at home, based on a photo taken with the laptop’s built in webcam. The student was eating candy.
