Good Link! That one's going into my archives.
I've generally handled these incidents privately but I've had to nuke a
few interns in my day. Most notable was the son of one of the VP's from
a company I once worked at. He was "helping" his old high school out by
scanning it's network from our Training servers. Big no-no.
He was fortunate they didn't want to press charges.
