Slightly off topic: a former employee at MedCo Health Solutins, the online prescription and pharmacy management company, has pled guilty to setting up a malware "logic bomb" to disrupt the MedCo computer system when he feared he would be fired in a downsizing. The logic bomb was discovered before it went off, but it it did, it would've prevented pharmacists from seeing potential adverse drug interactions.

Dude, I know you're scared of getting laid off and want to punish the company that's stupid enough to lay you off, but you coulda killed someone.

He's almost certainly going to jail. Which is appropriate.
