        “A former IT consultant hacked a company in Carlsbad, California, and deleted almost all its Microsoft Office 365 accounts in an act of revenge that has brought him two years of prison time.

        “More than 1,200 user accounts were removed in this act of sabotage, causing a complete shutdown of the company’s operations for two days.”
