Swedish hacker got into unsecured server of Indiana University and deleted the data of 3100 graduate students in order to get more free space to store his MP3s and video files.
It looks like he didn't use the data (which included social security numbers, etc) in any way, but just simply needed space to store the audio and video files. University police is looking into the case.

Maybe someone should have mentioned something about FreeSpace.com, XDrive.com, etc to him...?
