Which One is More Clueless? I Can’t Decide

Arian Eigen Heald Arian Eigen Heald Profile: Arian Eigen Heald

I ran across a story about a former employee who “broke into” his employer’s computers, according to a news story from a TV station, entitled Cops: Former Worker Hacked Casino Computers.

Now, here’s the real story: If you read the article, the guy did not “hack in.” He used his VPN connection from his home (Clueless Number 1) to go into his employer’s network and access computers to mess up some programming.

His VPN connection had obviously not been disabled (Clueless Number 2) by his employer.

The police (Clueless Number 3) referred to him as a “computer whiz” for using his VPN connection from his home to get into his employer’s network.

Whiz? Cheese Whiz, maybe?
