A court has ordered a UK hacker to pay compensation after he used a purloined laptop to hack into his ex-employer's personnel database. Colin Parker, 31, gained unauthorised access to staff contracts containing salary details and emailed this to around 400 workers at his ex-employer, CHI and Partners. Parker's attempt to create bad feeling among workers at the firm was foiled by an alert sys admin, who intercepted and deleted the potentially incendiary emails.
