Cheating at the University?

This article begins: "An 'alarmingly large fraction' of the first-year class of economics graduate students at the University of Virginia were involved in a cheating incident that came to light this month, according to the department chair."

What is said to have happened is this:

"Department officials said that some problem sets from textbooks used in introductory graduate economics courses have answer keys online. At least one student found answers for a course taken by all first-year students, and apparently shared the information with classmates."
