"The former IT admin for a Florida-based charity stands accused of ransacking the organization's servers and phone systems last Christmas eve, more than a year after his employment there ended."
More then a year after his employment ended? Why weren't the passwords changed no more then 5 minutes after his employment ended? Seriously, shit like that is why these companies keep getting smacked by former admins. I agree he should pay but there should also be a fine involved for those companies too stupid to do normal security related stuff.....LIKE CHANGING THE BLOODY PASSWORDS AFTER SOMEONE LEAVES!!!!!
On a side though what I would like to know is why he did this. What was his reasoning to be so pissed off about it for over a year that he finally decided to do something? What were his terms of discharge?
