TLDR: dude left Cisco, logged into their AWS account after 5 months, deleted a bunch of VMs, hilarity ensued

Anyone here works for Cisco? how does an ex-employee have access to company resources 5 months after leaving the company?

Investigators said Ramesh then proceeded to run a script that deleted 456 virtual machines that were supporting Cisco's video conferencing software WebEx Teams, actions that resulted in the temporary deletion of more than 16,000 Webex accounts.

To be honest I probabaly could access thousands of environments from a company I used to work for like 2 years ago, depending on what you do there is usually a way. That shit is NOT WORTH it at all, they can also hit you up with like wire fraud and all kinds of shit

Remember that SF network admin dude who handed the key/pass over to the mayor in a jail cell?
