IT manager sentenced to prison in hacking case
An Orange, Calif., IT manager who earlier pled guilty to hacking into his previous employer's computer network was sentenced Monday to five months in prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Tuesday.
According to a plea agreement dated Aug. 30, 2004, Mark Erfurt broke into the computer systems of Santa Clara, Calif.'s Manufacturing Electronic Sales (MESC) on Jan. 23 and 24 of 2003. During that time, he deleted data, read e-mail, and downloaded a proprietary database from the network using the PC Anywhere remote control software, the agreement said.
