Disgruntled employee locks out users before getting canned

Classic case of nerd-knows-more-about-everything vs the manager who knows nothing and fails to heed technology warnings. Even so, you have to admit this is drastic measures, especially for a nerd. I mean sticking to what you believing is one thing, going to jail for those beliefs is another. I don’t know too many willing to go that far but Terry, I salute you.

“Terry Childs, a 43-year-old computer network administrator who lives in Pittsburg, has been charged with four counts of computer tampering and is scheduled to be arraigned today.

Prosecutors say Childs, who works in the Department of Technology at a base salary of just over $126,000, tampered with the city’s new FiberWAN (Wide Area Network), where records such as officials’ e-mails, city payroll files, confidential law enforcement documents and jail inmates’ bookings are stored.” (link)
