Prisoners in five Idaho correctional institutions hacked JPay tablets
for almost a quarter million dollars in credits, the Associated Press
reported. In all, 364 inmates allegedly exploited the tablet's
software for $225,000.

JPay handheld computer tablets supplied to Idaho prisoners provide a
means to email families and friends, video chat, watch educational
videos, and download and play purchased games and music.  The tablets,
which are supplied by contract with CenturyLink and JPay, do not allow
internet access.
