Idaho prisoners hack $225,000 in credits from JPay computer tablets [telecom]

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.
