Are you going to fire your Vice President when it becomes apparent that
his 16 year old son has broken into one of your servers and used it to
launch SYN flood attacks on BC-Tel's servers?

The supervisor will come back and say, "We haven't been able to talk to
Joe about this because he called in sick for a couple of days. Now when we
try to reach him his phone rings and rings with no answer and Fred told me

Ding, ding,ding, industrial espionage. Joe has gotten the info, delivered
the goods, collected his payment and he is off to greener pastures.
