Moron used school WiFi to send messages

Undergrad Harvard student Eldo Kim had the “bright” idea to avoid a final exam he wasn't keen on taking. To avoid his exam, the 20-year-old student admitted to emailing bomb threats to several campus offices.
 
Kim faces up to five years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 if convicted. The threats Kim made resulted in four campus buildings being cleared out that day.
 
Kim’s email message was delivered to the campus police and the student newspaper as well as several Harvard offices. The subject line of the email read, "bombs placed around campus." The message in the email read, "shrapnel bombs placed in science center, sever hall, emerson hall, thayer hall, 2/4. guess correctly. be quick for they will go off soon."
 
Kim tried to cover his tracks by sending the emails though the Tor anonymizing system. However, he made one critical mistake (if we set aside making the bomb thread in the first place); he accessed Tor using Harvard’s Wi-Fi network.
 
This blunder made it quite easy for Harvard network technicians and the FBI to track him down.
