A 25-year-old Greater Sudbury man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly hacking the Laurentian University computer system.
Laurentian reported to Greater Sudbury Police this past February that the university’s computer network had been compromised, the police service said in a statement. The GSPS criminal investigations division and cybercrime unit, as well as the OPP cybercrime unit, collaborated in an investigation and executed a search warrant on Thursday at a Greater Sudbury residence, where computers and data storage devices were seized.
The 25-year-old, who was not named by police, has been charged with unauthorized use of a computer system, mischief to data, and breach of probation.
He has been released on a promise to appear and is due in court on Sept. 6.
