In our engineering school the password hash used to be publicly accessible. Someone had devised a johntheripper binary to look like seti@home and made it run on several machines with the admins' benediction.

We had a meagre limited amount of quota on these shared systems (between 1 and 10 MB) but teachers had 1 GB. We stored the Quake binary on one teacher's account, Starcraft 1 on another and start kicking.

Good times...
