Michael Normington, 32, of Burbank pleaded guilty in April to a federal charge of accessing a computer without authorization. Three weeks after he quit his job last year as a Web site developer at Hinda Incentives, Normington intruded into the company's computer system and damaged its Web site, said Assistant U.S. Atty. James Conway. Normington deleted files, redirected certain users to a pornographic Web site and wrote derogatory comments about customers and employees, authorities said. U.S. District Judge John Darrah also ordered Normington to pay restitution of $38,000 to Hinda Incentives. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
