A former Cisco employee pleaded guilty to accessing the company’s cloud infrastructure in 2018, five months after resigning, to deploy code that led to the shut down of more than 16,000 WebEx Teams accounts and the deletion of 456 virtual machines.

According to a plea agreement filed on July 30, 2020, 30-year-old Sudhish Kasaba Ramesh accessed Cisco’s cloud infrastructure hosted on Amazon Web Services without permission on September 24, 2018 — he resigned from the company in April 2018.
