A software developer was busted for outsourcing his job to a programmer in China while he surfed the Web at work.
The case was described by Andrew Valentine, a principal with Verizon Enterprise Solutions, who published a blog post about the incident.
Valentine's team was contacted by another company based in the U.S. for assistance over "anomalous activity" it noticed in records of employees logging remotely into the company's IT system.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions is not releasing the name of the company or the employee.
