Once again, a slumdog got pissed off and tried to do damage to a company's IT system (as if their mere presence doesn't destroy many IT systems), a situation I blogged about in 2009:

"Allegro MicroSystems LLC is suing a former IT employee for sabotaging its database using a "time bomb" that deleted crucial financial data in the first week of the new fiscal year.

The lawsuit was filed in August 2016 and is currently ongoing. The defendant is a man named Nimesh Patel from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, who worked for Allegro between August 26, 2002, and January 8, 2016.

Patel was one of Allegro's many IT workers, in charge of the company's database, and more precisely of an Oracle finance module, which the company used to manage the financial side of its business."
