This seems like it might have been easier to just ask for your job back. A software engineer was arrested last week after reportedly hacking his former employer and deleting information in the hopes that he would be rehired. The engineer, identified as one Vikesh Sharma, used to work as a senior software engineer in the company until being fired during the lockdown due to disagreement over his salary. Only instead of moving on and looking for another job, Vikesh allegedly tried to get his old job back. He managed to hack his former employer’s database and delete thousands of patient details, in the hopes that his former boss would contact him to rectify the situation. That didn’t happen. Police traced the hack to Vikesh and he was arrested while also admitting his guilt.
