SPODSA New Student Registration

Location: Booth in lobby 13
Date: Registration Day Fall 2003

On regday in fall 2003, hackers pretended to be an official group, "SPODSA" or Special Police of the Office of the Dean for Student Affairs. They dressed in black, with black shades, and set up a booth in lobby 13 and for freshman (new student) registration. The freshman filled out the following forms, which the hackers said would then be sent to headquarters via a "secure one-time fax," which turned out to be a shredder.

The hackers even had "REGISTERED" stamp, which they stamped on the freshman after their forms were filled out.
