Idaho inmates hack prison system and steal $225,000 in credits - BBC News

Hundreds of Idaho prison inmates have hacked jail software to "artificially" boost the amount of money in their own accounts, officials say.

The Idaho Department of Corrections said 364 inmates were "intentionally exploiting a vulnerability" to take nearly $225,000 (£171,000).

Fifty prisoners credited their accounts with more than $1,000 each while another inmate transferred $9,990.
