A US-based software developer has been caught outsourcing his work to China for less than a fifth of his six figure salary – while he spent his day browsing Facebook, LinkedIn, Ebay and Reddit.

In a case study outlined by the team, Verizon said: “The company’s IT personnel were sure that the issue had to do with some kind of zero day malware that was able to initiate VPN connections from Bob’s desktop workstation via external proxy and then route that VPN traffic to China, only to be routed back to their concentrator.

Holy shit, if all you had to do to outsource your job was give them an RSA key and pay 20% of your salary, that’s awesome! I hate my daytime job, but this guy totally Tim Ferriss‘d his job! It all went so well… Until you got caught.
