London, Mar 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Europe’s youngest app developer, 14-year-old Aaron Bond, has been expelled from his school and given police reprimand after he was caught breaking into his school’s computer system. Police took his fingerprints and DNA samples before warning him not to repeat the offense.

Investigators say Aaron managed to use passwords to gain access to the school’s computer systems. He accessed several confidential data including the headmaster’s financial statement. He was about to alter the school newsletter and the IT booking system on the server when the breach was detected by the school authorities.

His school, King Edward VI College in Totnes, say they will not have him in the school again despite pleas from the teenager who claim that he never knew the consequences of his action.

Apologizing for the incident, Aaron said that, “I am very sorry and if I had known the consequences I never would have done it.”

Aaron is a promising IT brain. He was selected by Apple to attend its conference last year after coming up with six apps. He has founded a web design company and he is the managing director of the company.

He revealed that he got curious about the school system and that is what prompted him to break into it.
