    Default School project help!

    Hello!

    It's me again, I need some help..
    I would need to bypass some security to get
    able to get my hands on some images from other peoples account
    in school.

    Nothing serious, only to show that I PWN! :P

    No but seriously, I would like to know if that is possible because
    I have worked with games and stuff, but not security in java so
    it would be a great experience as I now got nothing to do on the
    rest of my time in programing class as I finished all task and were not
    even half way through the term.

    Please help me, Im not a bad hacker, you know me :)
    All I want is to dig into java and security handeling :D

    Java's security is there to protect certain resources against attacks, not to circumvent other security systems ...

    kind regards,

    Okaj..
    Well, I think I got an idea..

    So when I log into the computer, I need an account and a password.
    Now, as I logg in it says: Connecting to server NFS023 or something.
    It does NOT however, include my Acc name in the server name.

    Conclusion, All students account information should lie on the same server :D
    Can I then somehow "change my index" so instead of me looking into my personal files, it will look at the person underme in the index lists, files.

    So can I change my index in anyway? (thereby faking to be anohter account)

    Why don't you get a copy of the source code for the server and look in there to see how you can be a thief and steal someone else's data.

    mean thinking I intend to launch a trojan or something, IM NOT!

    Besides! Not like they hide personal images or data on their school computer!
