Identified the problem, now what is the fix
I do agree with the most recent commenter, thank you for sharing. But now that we understand the problem, how do we resolve the issue so it does not happen again.
  • Do we purchase cameras so we see who is going in and out of the various buildings
  • Do we purchase software to help us detect devices on the network that are out of the norm
  • Do we perform audits of the network and inventory the environment so issues are caught ahead of time (is there a program in place that does it every 6 months)
  • Is there an educational program to train the students and teachers about the use of the network and approved usage

However, removing the students is somewhat harsh, I do think this is a real-world attack and their exploit can be used by the other departments, don't kill their dreams, but have them work with the Cybersecurity teams to demonstrate real-world examples. Punish them but have them teach how a hacker thinks, there is a psychological evaluation that could help the students find ways to address real-world attacks (this is a perfect example). Put them on probabation but send them to the psychological evaluation unit where they can be evaluated and studied. This helps everyone understand how the mind works so you can combat the problem, if you have never been a hacker, then how do you know what to look for in order to defend against a potential theat (there was a movie called "To understand the mind of a killer" or "How to get away with murder", well why not do the samething but do it in a classroom setting.

Just a thought.
