A former employee at computer-monitor maker ViewSonic Corp. was sentenced Monday to one year in prison for hacking into the company's computer system and wiping out critical data central to running its foreign operations.
Andrew Garcia, 39, worked as a network administrator at the company's Walnut, Calif., office, where he maintained computer servers and had access to system passwords for managers.
Garcia pleaded guilty in October to one count of "accessing a protected computer and recklessly causing damage" at ViewSonic, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Central District of California in Los Angeles. ViewSonic reported more than $1 billion in annual revenue in 2003.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
