Security Audit Finds Company’s Top Dev Outsourced His Work To China

Following the example of many U.S. businesses a developer for a “critical infrastructure company” outsourced his job to a Chinese subcontractor and was spending his days surfing the web. Instead of rewarding his ingenuity, the unnamed company fired “Bob,” their star programmer. From the article: “The scheme worked very well for Bob. In his performance assessments by the firm’s human resources department, he was the firm’s top coder for many quarters and was considered expert in C, C++, Perl, Java, Ruby, PHP, and Python. Further investigation found that the enterprising Bob had actually taken jobs with other firms and had outsourced that work too, netting him hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit as well as lots of time to hang around on internet messaging boards and checking out the latest Detective Mittens video.”
