Digital Prison Break

Some state prison inmates in New Hampshire pulled off one of the scariest hacks we've heard of.

Last year, an unknown number of inmates were able to hack into the prison computer system. That gave them access to records and possibly the ability to alter parole dates and obtain home addresses of prison guards, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

It's not known whether any changes were made or sensitive data accessed. The state's Department of Corrections confirmed that a computer was breached, but declined to provide more information.
