TSA insider indicted on tampering charges

March 12, 2010

A former U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employee was indicted Wednesday for planting malicious code on a government server, which contained data about suspected terrorists that was used to screen airport workers, federal authorities said. Douglas James Duchak, 46, of Colorado Springs, Colo. was a data analyst at the TSA from 2004 to 2009. He carried out the scheme, which caused at least $5,000 in damages, after learning his employment would be terminated. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $500,000. — AM
