The Swiss intelligence agency (NDB) has been warning its US and UK counterparts that it may have lost terabytes of their secret information, thanks to one of its IT administrators pulling an inside job. The rogue administrator, whom a source described to Reuters as “very talented,” had admin rights to most of the NBD’s servers, including sensitive files contributed from other agencies such as Britain’s MI6 and the CIA. He’d worked at the NDB for eight years but was reportedly disgruntled at his job and felt management were ignoring his suggestions on systems management.
