That's a crack up.

For $150k US a year, I wouldn't be doing anything stupid like that that's for sure!!! :lol:

You've just got to wonder why though.

They almost fire him, and he does this? Wtf was he expecting? A pay rise?

If the authorities can't extract the password then they have no specialists possibly.

Not so sure about that Sweep - a good system shouldn't have a back door or be able to be cracked with a linux boot disk etc. :D

What they SHOULD have in place is a checks & balances system where one person can't gatekeep information like that - a more likely scenario was him being hit by a bus etc; they'd have no chance of getting the admin credentials out of him then!!

They must have really p*ssed him off!
They may have to send him to Guantanamo Bay, the people down there should be able to 'extract' the password!
