Ex Apple employee steals from Apple

Scare tactic by big companies? Or is this a real case? Should larger corporations be more cautious and take additional action towards preventing employees from stealing IP (i.e. ML assisted monitoring systems to alert employers of suspicious activity)?

    Anyone remember a NASA employee took company's laptop when he boarded the plane with a one way ticket? The feds found out he put loads of porn on it and charged him copy right infringement...

    I have definitely accidentally taken some work documents home. I used my work laptop for a lot of personal stuff, e.g. mortgage applications, personal finances, etc. and when transferring documents/folders accidentally grabbed a couple of wrong ones. Full on copying a whole server seems intense tho

      Spy ware installed on laptop and with constant update.
      But what's more important is the internal network traffic monitor.
      If you already have things downloaded on laptop for a reasonable use case. And you aren't as stupid as AL there's nothing can detect you copying files already on laptop to another disk.
      AL was caught only because he wasn't aware of that.

      When I read some news story about some exciting MS project I often search for additional details in our I ternal documents. I also try debugging the Windows/IE/Edge/VS bugs even though I'm in a different division.

      I wonder whether this is going to trigger them.

      The Uber case? Indeed looks 90% similar except for the foreign part.

    Not cool. And actually stupid. Most companies have things monitored.

    “Zhang admitted to Apple's security staff that he had taken home a Linux server belonging to Apple and had transferred data to his wife's laptop. He said he wanted to review the data for his own education, hoping it would help him secure another job within Apple. He returned the server and brought the laptop into Apple for examination.” “
    Lol

    Xiaolang Zhang was successful in giving another confirmation to the public that apple is working on self-driving car technology. The so called secretive company must be outraged partly because of this public news as well 😂😂

    What if what was stolen was already stolen by Apple from someone else? Isn’t that how it always is? Mostly all ideas are stolen from others. When was the last time you saw something completely original ?
