Fired IT worker replaces CEO's PPT with porn

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "52-year-old Walter Powell wanted revenge when he was fired from his position as an IT manager at Baltimore Substance Abuse System Inc.

So, he hacked into their systems — installing keyloggers to steal passwords.

And then, when his CEO was giving a presentation on a 64 inch TV to the board of directors... he replaced the slides with pornographic images of naked women.

Powell has now been given a 2 year suspended sentence, and 100 hours community service.

The moral? Don't piss off your IT staff"

The CEO was embarrassed for a day. The former IT manager will never work in IT again. At 52 he will have a tough time getting a job outside of McDonalds.
