Parents were left horrified when an online event for students was hacked by naked men exposing themselves to children reports MailOnline.

Police are now investigating after the hackers ‘committed lewd acts and made threats’ towards the distraught pupils.

Six Doncaster schools had been invited to join an ‘author’ event arranged by external provider Reading Rampage yesterday morning.

But when the pupils logged in, instead of seeing the event that was promised, parents and pupils were shocked to see a group of naked men exposing themselves.

One parent whose child clicked on the link for the event, said: ‘They had a lesson with their teacher.
‘She then told them to click on the link and listen to the author. She then left the group and muted the chat (so the kids couldn’t message her).
‘A few kids obviously clicked the link she sent over and there were loads of foreign men stood totally naked with their private parts in there hands.’

Teachers slam students are Zoom login details ‘are shared online’

A school has warned pupils not to share online logins after strangers hacked into lessons and made sexual threats – with one man reportedly exposing himself on camera.

The headteacher sent a furious letter to parents after pupils leaked the Microsoft Teams logins for online lessons leading to two strangers ‘joining’ the lessons last week.

Chris Thomas, headteacher at Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy in Slough, blasted the pupils after one of the intruders made ‘threatening sexual comments as to what they were going to do to the teacher’.

He warned that other schools had reported incidents of men exposing themselves to classrooms – but this didn’t happen at his school.

The secondary school head threatened to halt live lessons altogether if pupils continued to flout the rules and share lesson log in access with others.

Thames Valley Police is investigating and child welfare charities have branded the intrusions ‘disgraceful, obscene and unlawful’.

A family member of one child at the school in Slough said pupil were sharing the log in details on Snapchat.

In his letter to parents, Mr Thomas said police were now investigating two criminal acts committed, and that one of the ‘intruders’ had been identified 

‘I have emailed your son or daughter to make it very clear, that they must not share the log-in details for any lesson, nor should they allow anyone else into the lesson by inviting them into their room whilst the lesson is happening,’ he added.

He said that we was aware of other schools reporting incidents of men exposing themselves to classrooms.

A sibling of a student at the school said: ‘I was shocked to hear that there had been security breaches within the live lessons. It worried me that from one silly child giving out their information to access the live online lessons all the other children could be put in danger.

‘Fortunately, my sister did not have to witness any of this shocking behaviour, but to think she could have seen a man exposing himself or witness threatening behaviour scares me.

‘The reality is this isn’t just a couple of children. I’ve seen a lot of Snapchat stories with this information being posted.

‘Children are posting their log in details on social media and they clearly don’t realise the danger they are putting themselves and others around them in.

‘Some of the children that are posting their log-in details on social media, the accounts aren’t even private, so literally anyone can see the information and access the lessons. It’s beyond worrying and something needs to be done to change this.’

Andy Burrows, head of child safety online policy at the NSPCC, said: ‘These are concerning reports that will have been incredibly upsetting for both the pupils and teachers involved.’

Tony Neate, CEO at Get Safe Online, said: ‘This incident that has happened to children and their teacher in a school environment is disgraceful, obscene and unlawful.’
