    A U.S. critical infrastructure company discovers an unauthorized VPN network connection. From China.
    The logs show a VPN connection for over 6 months...while they use two-factor RSA authentication.
    0-day malware, PLA&Co. APT, undetectable RAT?
    Surely it's not a setup by one of the top devs making a 6 digit salary, to outsource all of his daily work to a Chinese consultancy firm.
    That gets $50.000 p/yr. and sends proper invoices for all work done and to which the programmer actually Fedex'd his RSA token so the Chinese could easily login from 9:00-17:00?
    So he can have a daily routine like;

    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

    'For the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks.
    His code was clean, well written, and submitted in a timely fashion. Quarter after quarter, his performance review noted him as the best developer in the building.
