Toyota Accuses Fired IT Contractor of Damaging Network



Toyota USA is accusing a fired contractor of sabotaging internal software and breaking into a secure system before downloading confidential information on parts, designs and prices.

Last week the automaker filed a restraining order against Ibrahimshah Shahulhameed who is a former IT contractor at Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc. The restraining order prevents Shahulhameed from leaving the United States and from distributing trade secrets.

“If this information were disseminated to competitors or otherwise made public, it would be highly damaging to Toyota, and its suppliers, causing immediate and irreparable damage,” the Toyota filing says.

The document also says that Shahulhameed was fired on August 23 but logged into Toyota’s computer system after the firing to download proprietary and classified information.

Not surprising that subcontractors dominate the workforce there. I would think the headcount who work directly for the company actually keeps shrinking and shrinking, so there are actually less direct employees who are eligible for the company cars and what not.
