Trillium Health IT specialist admits to stealing personal info from colleagues' computers

A Trillium Health information technology specialist used his access to his colleagues' computers to steal personal information from them and to pull personal photos from their social media accounts.

Ameer Elashmawy, a 28-year-old Rochester man, pleaded guilty Monday to computer fraud.

"In his position, Elashmawy had administrative access to all employee network accounts while they used their computers at work," according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office. "Between April 2019 and January 2020,(Elashmawy) used his administrative access rights to search employees’ email and social media accounts without their knowledge or permission."

Then again, cases like that of Aaron Swartz might be avoided.
