Dead LAN's hand: IT staff 'locked out' of data center's core switch after the only bloke who could log into it dies

"especially since nothing is broken."

How do you know nothing is broken if you can't log into it? Just because it is routing traffic properly? How do you know that on top of it's normal duties, it isn't logging all LAN traffic and shipping it off to your competitor? Or that it hasn't otherwise been rooted, given the lack of clues possessed by the former admin?

To me, the box is a corporate hazard and needs to be airgapped, preferably last December!
