H-1B worker faces 10 years in prison for creating logic bomb attack on former employer Fannie Mae IT systems

VIA http://www.thetechherald.com

“Rajendrasinh Babubha Makwana, a Fannie Mae contractor indicted earlier this year for creating a logic bomb after being terminated from his job, was found guilty this week by a federal jury in Maryland. The initial indictment raised several issues, including calls to examine the H1B Visa program, but the real problem was policy failure.

During the Makwana indictment, the court said that if the logic bomb had been successful, it would have “caused millions of dollars of damage and reduced if not shutdown operations at [Fannie Mae] for at least one week.”

Makwana now faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz has scheduled sentencing for December 8, 2010 at 9:30 a.m.”
