Former Yahoo engineer pleads guilty to hacking user emails in search for porn

He pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of computer intrusion, under which he faces a maximum prison sentence of five years and a fine of up to $250,000. Ruiz’s sentencing is scheduled for February 3, 2020. The former engineer has been released under a $200,000 bond.

Ruiz stopped working at Yahoo! in July 2018. He’s currently employed at a Silicon Valley tech company specialized in SSO (single sign-on) solutions.

So not only is he still working in tech, he’s now working at a company that specializes in SSO? That’ll give him even more logins to hack into!
