Ex-employee of major South-East Asian IT firm jailed after he brings down its test servers — with scripts found on Google

An Indian national formerly employed in Singapore by the information technology (IT) services firm National Computer Systems (NCS) has been handed a custodial sentence for deleting all 180 of its test servers with scripts that he found on Google and then “perfected”.

The story (via Tom’s Hardware) says Kandula Nagaraju, 39, disagreed with his being fired for poor performance from NCS’ Quality Assurance (QA) department, concerned with testing new apps, and exploited the fact that his colleagues and superiors left his access credentials active to remotely wipe servers in a plan hatched from January through March 2023.
