He Outsourced His Own Job

The security team at Verizon had a case study about a guy who outsourced his own job and then spend all day at work having fun on the internet. There was no mention of what company was involved.

The story goes a little something like this. A developer at a US-based critical infrastructure company, referred to as “Bob,” was caught last year outsourcing his work to China, paying someone else less than one fifth of his six-figure salary to do his job. As a result, Bob had a lot of time on his hands; in fact, during the investigation, his browsing history revealed this was his typical work day:

    9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos.
    11:30 a.m. – Take lunch.
    1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.
    2:00 – ish p.m Facebook updates – LinkedIn.
    4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.
    5:00 p.m. – Go home.

If Bob were the CEO of a company, he'd get a promotion for such money-saving ingenuity. But Bob is not a CEO, and the communication with his consultant in China involved some serious security breaches. What ultimately happened to Bob is unknown, but you can read how they caught him at The Next Web. Link  -via Digg
