GM Security Breach an "Inside Job"

By  | 

A former security guard at General Motors' Warren technical center is accused of taking employee Social Security numbers and using them to hack into the company's employee vehicle database.

Authorities say James S Green the Second found out what company cars the employees drove and sent them bogus e-mails asking them their thoughts on the vehicles.

The 35-year-old from Macomb County's Washington Township was arraigned yesterday on eight counts of obtaining, possessing or transferring personal identity information, one count of using a computer to commit a crime and one count of stalking that was unrelated to the GM cases.

He was released after posting 10 percent of a 50-thousand dollar bond.
