    • Security Fail – When Trusted IT members go bad!! – Link Here

“It’s a CIO’s worst nightmare: You get a call from the Business Software Alliance (BSA), saying that some of the Microsoft software your company uses might be pirated.

You investigate and find that not only is your software illegal, it was sold to you by a company secretly owned and operated by none other than your own IT systems administrator,
a trusted employee for seven years. When you start digging into the admin’s activities, you find a for-pay porn Web site he’s been running on one of your corporate servers.
Then you find that he’s downloaded 400 customer credit card numbers from your e-commerce server.

And here’s the worst part: He’s the only one with the administrative passwords.”
