Security increased at Baltimore city buildings after fired IT employee gains access to sensitive areas

Kevin Rector reports:

Security is being increased at Baltimore’s municipal buildings after a former employee, fired for having alleged hacking tools on his city computer, managed to gain “unfettered access” to sensitive areas at the Abel Wolman Municipal Building downtown, according to a report by the city’s inspector general and multiple sources familiar with the investigation.

The breach occurred May 6, the day before the city was hit by a ransomware attack, though the sources said any potential connection between the events was investigated and determined to be unlikely, and the matter has been dropped.
