wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Yet another "disgruntled" worker story today. According to court documents obtained by SecurityWeek, Toyota has filed a lawsuit against an ex-contractor who was working for the automaker in Kentucky, for sabotaging its supplier network and downloading sensitive information.

The day he was terminated, from midnight until approximately 06:30 a.m. on August 24, the contractor “sabotaged various programs and applications; and accessed, copied, downloaded and/or disseminated trade secrets and proprietary information.” Further, the automaker charges the former contractor with modifying 13 applications on toyotasupplier.com causing it to crash.

Toyota asked the court for a temporary restraining order preventing him from leaving the country and returning to India. The automaker asked the court for a temporary restraining order preventing him from leaving, but it wasn’t needed as he agreed to an order on Monday that he would not travel for 14 days. He remains free on a $2,500 bond until trial."

  • If he was able to work for 6.5 hours AFTER he was fired, the IT security folks at Toyota should also be fired. As everyone knows, it is standard policy that the moment a person is no longer employed with a company, their permissions should be removed. If not sooner.
