Washington Leung has pleaded guilty to breaking into the computer system at the Manhattan insurance company Marsh, Inc. Leung was fired in October 2000 after a co-worker complained of harassment. The woman told her bosses the abuse began after she rejected his romantic overtures. After he was fired, Leung swiped salary files and altered the unidentified woman's records to boost her annual pay by $40,000 and give her a bonus of $100,000. He then sent an e-mail to top management at the firm suggesting the woman was involved in the theft of the confidential payroll numbers, according to court papers. Manhattan federal judge Richard Casey ordered Leung to serve 18 months and pay $91,814 in restitution. _______________________________________________________________________ Eric Wolbrom, CISSP Safe Harbor Technologies President & CIO 190 Goldens Bridge Ct.
