(Scroll down for video) A young boy of Finland, who managed to hack into Instagram and delete other people’s messages, received a $10,000 reward from Facebook.

10-year-old Jani of Helsinki, who is too young to have an Instagram or Facebook account, managed to delete user comments without logging into an account.

Jani figured out a way to enter code in the comments section and gaining access to the servers that control the comments.

Jani said that he was even able to delete Justin Bieber's comments.

After an official of Facebook wrote a test comment on Instagram and the boy managed to delete it, he was rewarded $10,000.

A spokesperson for Facebook said that the fault was resolved after the boy brought it to the attention of the company.

The boy was able to delete comments as the server failed to check if the person removing the comment was the same user who posted it.

The boy's father revealed that Jani and his twin brother have discovered security flaws in the past, none of which were as significant as his latest discovery.

The $10,000 prize is a part of a bounty program, offering attractive rewards to hackers and researchers who find bugs or failures in digital infrastructure, including Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

Jani is the youngest person to receive a cash reward from Facebook.

During her last visit, Willson was walking away from the town center, and after entering the cemetery, spotted her. He had been taking drugs and wanted to get money for another fix.

(Scroll down for video) A teacher is facing disciplinary action after she allowed a young girl to go home early.

7-year-old Rosabella Dahu of Texas, was supposed to stay in school to attend an after school program.

However, the child did not want to stay so she wrote a note, asking the teacher to allow her to board the bus so she can go home early.

In the note, the second grader wrote to Ms. Reigs: “I want Rosabella to go too dus (sic) 131 today.”

Shockingly, despite it being obvious that the note was written by the child and the word bus was misspelled, a staff member at the school excused Rosabella.

The father, Charlie Dahu, removed his daughter from the Sheldon Elementary in Houston, despite their promise to take disciplinary action against the teacher.

Man pours rat poison on food at more than 12 supermarkets including Walmart and Whole Foods

The suspect 
By: Tanya Malhotra

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after being seen on surveillance video pouring rat poison on food at several supermarkets and retailers, police in Michigan said.

The Michigan departments of Agriculture and Rural Development and Health and Human Services are cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on an investigation involving intentional food contamination at retail grocery stores in Ann Arbor.

Thanks to citizen tips, the suspect was apprehended by the Ann Arbor Police Department.

During interrogation, the suspect admitted to intentionally contaminating salad bars and produce sections of at least three grocery stores in the greater Ann Arbor area – Whole Foods, Meijer, Inc. and Plum Market – at least twice in the last month.

The suspect claims to have sprayed the food with a mixture of a commercial rat poison, alcohol-based hand-sanitizer and water.

Samples have been sent for further laboratory analysis to determine the concentration.

The chemicals found in this mixture are a form of anti-coagulant, similar to what is found in medicines that have an anti-clotting function.

Based on the known ingredients in the mixture at this time, the department does not anticipate any adverse health effects on individuals who may have ingested potentially contaminated products.

The stores involved have been contacted and additional samples have been collected by law enforcement for further testing.

Food inspectors are in the stores, conducting follow-up assessments of the potentially affected locations.

Out of an abundance of caution and to protect public health and food safety, consumers were asked to dispose of any foods purchased from salad bars, olive bars and ready-to-eat hot and cold food areas from these stores over the last two months.

Although most of these types of foods may have already been eaten or disposed of, some may still be in refrigerators or freezers.

Based on the FBI investigation, there is the potential that other stores in Michigan may also have been targeted.

These stores include Busch's, Cupcake Station, Family Fare, Kroger, Meijer, Millers Mini Mart, Plum Market, Target, Tsai Grocery, Walmart, and Whole Foods.

While the risk for adverse health effects appears to be low, more investigation is being done to determine what level of exposure may have occurred.

Chirichella passed a background check and had excellent references from previous employers.

Chirichella told the court that the photo is no more sexually explicit than recognized pieces of fine artwork of Da Vinci, Titian, or Michelangelo, and less explicit than the photos published in Sports Illustrated.

Chirichella believes that what bothered Con Ed was the comments below the image, in which she revealed that she is a lesbian.

She is demanding unspecified damages.
