FBI Hacked by Consultant

A computer consultant working for the FBI is facing jail time for accessing secret passwords of Director Robert Mueller and others in the agency, the Associated Press reports on MSNBC.com.

Joseph Thomas Colon, 28, lost his job and security clearance with the FBI after admitting that he exceeded his authorized computer access on four occasions in 2004, the AP reports.

He pleaded guilty on all four counts, and prosecutors recommended about a yearlong prison sentence, according to the AP. Sentencing was set for July 13. FBI Hacked by Consultant - Security Feed - Blog - CSO Magazine
