    IT worker jailed for hacking into his former employer's systems

    An IT worker sacked for lying on his CV hacked into his former company's systems and removed vital information, New Scotland Yard has revealed.

    Julius Oladiran, 46, of South Norwood, London, lost his database developer job after employers realised he was not qualified and had lied about having a BSc, an MSc, and working for the Ministry of Defence and the Labour Party.

    He installed spyware on the company's network to find out what former colleagues were saying about him. His departure meant that a project had to be cancelled, which led to job losses at the small company.

    Oladiran was discovered when a company worker noticed his mouse moving around the screen apparently by itself.
