Sacked Sysadmin causes havoc!
A sacked system administrator has been jailed for 34 months after causing over $1m off damage via a VPN connection that was left open. The sysadmin has been with the company for years and when he got sacked on valentine’s day he didn’t take it lying down.
Disgruntled employees are the most dangerous especially when they have been there years and no the setup inside out. This paper factory has fallen foul to this but many businesses each year get caught out and it can be costly.
