SF Net Hijacker Gives Up Passwords

Tim Wilson writes on Dark Reading:

Terry Childs, the former IT administrator accused of kidnapping the city of San Francisco's data network, is ready to give up the administrative passwords to the system, his attorney said yesterday.

Childs is accused of changing all of the city's network passwords so that only he could access the network, which contains email, payroll, law enforcement, and inmate booking files, apps and data.

According to a report in Wired, Childs pleaded not guilty yesterday to four felony counts of denying access to the city's network and of producing an unauthorized access device to control the government's network remotely.
