    wEIRD,
    This is very strange. They decided to fire 1 IT group, install another, and SHIP the control Over to another country to do the Work??
    And the problem is the IT people bypassed security precautions, and JUST UPLOADED it to 2 other corporations..in other countries.

    Its not that the DATA is lost. ITS who pushed to close down the IT dept. and FORCED them to RUSH the job..
