A former IT manager, 38-year-old Jacob Raines, of Missouri, is heading to federal prison for stealing proprietary source code and accessing his former employer’s computer to view child abuse imagery.
Raines worked for nearly 10 years as IT manager for American Crane & Tractor Parts in Kansas City, Kansas. He stole source code that his former employer said was worth over $5,000. It’s not clear whether Raines actually gave the source code to a competitor, but prosecutors say he certainly had the connections and means to do so.
According to a release from the Western District of Missouri US Attorney’s Office, Raines was sentenced on Wednesday to six years in federal prison without parole.
On May 23 2017, Raines pleaded guilty to one count of computer intrusion and one count of accessing a computer in order to view child abuse imagery.
Raines had resigned as IT manager from American Crane in March 2014. When the new IT manager took over, he or she stripped out Raines’ passwords, among other security changes. But while they were using the computer that used to be assigned to Raines, they noticed that somebody had logged into it remotely and copied files to an off-site server.
In the days leading up to his departure, Raines copied the proprietary source code and file folders to his remote servers.
Police executed a search warrant at Raines’s residence on April 2 2015, for evidence of the computer intrusion and theft of trade secrets. They found copies of the proprietary source code on his home computer, in addition to an enormous cache of child abuse material. Investigators found that Raines had, since 13 November 2013, used peer-to-peer sharing software to look for the content.

He had more than 7,000 images and videos on a DVD. There were another 3,900 thumbnail images and 260 icon images of child abuse on the unallocated space on a hard drive of another computer. There were yet more – 6,000 images and 25 videos – on the unallocated space of a separate loose hard drive.
He could have potentially caused his former employer “significant financial harm,” the US Attorney’s Office said.
网络安全、信息安全,最终的目的是保护业务安全,所以信息安全管理人员们,要学习和了解公司的业务流程、审计和内部控制等,方能更好地为公司做出更大的贡献。

There was nothing “potential” about the harm that was done to those children.
