Insider hacks own system


ABC reports that a San Francisco employee created "virtually exclusive access to most of the city's municipal data." And I thought those days were long gone when that would be possible. 
However, it doesn't sound like something that a good computer forensics expert couldn't solve.

Yeah, I was reading about this earlier. It would be interesting if he left access to someone else or left a logic bomb of some sort.

From the article:

``Worst-case -- this is the absolute worst-case -- it's six to eight weeks they can rebuild the entire system and shut this one down," Newsom told reporters Tuesday. ''

That would be a shame...

Well, Defcon and BH are around the corner... maybe someone from there could help them ;-)
