'They was (sic) firing me. I just beat them to it. Nothing personal'.
WFAA.com reports that according to a statement released by the office of U.S. Attorney John R. Parker, Lennon Ray Brown, 38, intentionally damaged the protected computer after a work performance review on December 23, 2013 at a Citibank Regents Campus in Irving.
Authorities say at about 6 p.m. that night, Brown "transmitted a code and command to 10 core Citibank Global Control Center routers," which "erased the running configuration files in nine of the routers." They say he then left the business about two minutes later.
Authorities say he admitted to causing the damage and sent a text to a coworker after he transmitted the code:
", the upper management need to see what they guys on the floor is (sic) capable of doing when they keep getting mistreated. I took one for the team. Sorry if I made my peers look bad, but sometimes it take (sic) something like what I did to wake the upper management up.”
