San Francisco IT Admin Pleads Not Guilty to Network Tampering

Robert McMillan writes on InfoWorld:

A disgruntled network administrator pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of computer tampering for allegedly setting up an unauthorized access system and holding much of the city of San Francisco's computer network hostage.

Terry Childs, 43, entered the plea in San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday morning. His next court appearance is a bail hearing set for July 23.

Administrators have been struggling for the past few weeks to regain control of the city's Fibre WAN after Childs allegedly reset administrative passwords to its switches and routers, and refused to hand them over.
