Verizon finds US developer outsourced his job to China so he could surf Reddit and watch cat videos
No, this is not the Onion, its not April Fools, and Im not making this up. All of this comes straight from Verizon, or more specifically, a case study from 2012 outlined by its security team.
The story goes a little something like this. A developer at a US-based critical infrastructure company, referred to as Bob, was caught last year outsourcing his work to China, paying someone else less than one fifth of his six-figure salary to do his job. As a result, Bob had a lot of time on his hands; in fact, during the investigation, his browsing history revealed this was his typical work day:
9:00 a.m. Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos.
11:30 a.m. Take lunch.
1:00 p.m. Ebay time.
2:00 ish p.m Facebook updates LinkedIn.
4:30 p.m. End of day update e-mail to management.
5:00 p.m. Go home.

3. I'll admit I'm a little jealous...
Funny how out of all the things he could have done with his spare time, he still burned the day on reddit/youtube/ebay/facebook...What a no-lifer...
