Ibrahimshah Shahulhameed, a former employee of GlobalSource IT, exacted revenge by hacking into and disrupting Toyota’s computer network. GlobalSource IT provides IT services to the Japanese automobile giant.
Hired as a contractor for Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Kentucky, Shahulhameed is said to have led to the crashing of the firm's supplier computer network by issuing wrong commands after being fired from Global source IT for harassing another contractual employee at Toyota in August.
An arrest warrant was filed in a US District court, and the affidavit reported that the disgruntled employee “knowingly caused the transmission of programmes, information, codes, and commands, and ... intentionally caused damage, without authorisation, to a protected computer.”
