Terry Childs, the IT guy gone wild who worked for the City and County of San Francisco and effectively froze municipal systems when he went rogue, infamously stashed all sorts of backdoors around the network. Now engineers brought in to solve the mess still can't find one router, which when accessed over the network replies: "This system is the personal property of Terry S. Childs." How much will this cry for job security cost taxpayers? $197,000 has already been spent out of $1 million estimated for the repairs. Childs remains behind bars on $5 million bail and faces a maximum sentence of seven years. [Network World] (Photo by Morten Skogly)
