Fired Houston organ bank worker accused of hacking into system

Cindy George of the Houston Chronicle reports on a hacking case that thankfully did not result in an interruption of patient care:

The fired technology director of a Houston organ donation company has been accused of hacking into its computer system and deleting records.

A federal indictment alleges that over two days in November 2005, Danielle Duann illegally accessed and damaged LifeGift Organ Donation Center’s database.


Duann is charged under a statute that makes it a federal crime to use technology to impair, or potentially impair, medical examination, diagnosis, treatment and care.
