Failure as a sysadmin, failure as a hacker

LOL! This has gotta be an indication of incompetence. Don’t you know you’re supposed to install those self destruct codes as soon as you get hired?

” A 51-year-old systems administrator from New Jersey has received the longest federal prison sentence for attempting a crime designed to damage a computer system. Yung-Hsun Lin (also known as Andy Lin) was given 30 months in jail for planting code on a company server in 2003 that was supposed to destroy a medical drug database. He was also ordered by US District Judge Jose Linares to pay $81,200 in restitution to his former employer, Medco Health Solutions.” (link)
