So Vishwanath Akuthota , an ex-student of the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New york is said to serve 10 years in prison plus a $250, 000 fine, after pleading guilty to charges that he used a USB device that was designed to instantly fry and burn circuitry on his college computers.
Reports suggests that he inserted the Killer USB into a total of 66 computers in the San Rose campus. And as funny as it may sound, the 27-year old actually recorded himself inserting the drive into the computers while saying “I’m going to kill this guy.”
He was said to have caused damages to computers worth of $58,471 and as part of his sentence has agreed to pay back that sum back to the school.
According to reports, Akuthota never showed or displayed any signs of crime or criminal intent, he was said to have even appeared in one of the college’s video where he said he had hooes of becoming an entrepreneur after school.
He went onnto say in the video that ” i see there are lots of opportunities in the college which will prepare you for the better future, where i can learn and apply in my life.” (Ya, apply the act of frying computers with a killer USB)😂
