Yes, you read that right. When asked how easy they thought it would be for a student in grades 1-6 to hack a school, 15 percent of respondents said it was either somewhat easy (6 percent) or very easy (9 percent). The numbers rise with age. Some 57 percent think a high school student could easily hack a school, and 63 percent think an undergraduate would have no problem. These responses were part of a survey of 1,000 Americans conducted by SurveyMonkey on behalf of Radware.
