AT&T sues small nonprofit company for hacking fees that trace back to it

AT&T Inc. raked in nearly $44 billion in revenues last year, and paid chairman and CEO Edward E. Whitacre Jr. $8.34 million in salary. Whitacre makes $340,000 more a year than the entire $8 million annual budget of HealthInsight, a Salt Lake City-based, 60-employee, nonprofit organization AT&T is suing in U.S. District Court.
At issue: more than $25,500 in telephone charges the telecommunications giant acknowledges an unidentified hacker or hackers piled up, but for which it holds the hacker's victim, HealthInsight, responsible. Salt Lake Tribune - Business via Hack In The Box
