FBI Investigates Man in U-Md. Data Disclosure

Posted:
Court documents show the FBI is investigating a computer worker in connection with the online disclosure last month of University of Maryland President Wallace Loh's Social Security and cellphone numbers.
    
An affidavit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore names Parkville resident David Helkowski as the target of the investigation.
    
Helkowski didn't immediately respond to email and telephone queries.
    
The document says Helkowski was working March 15 for the Baltimore-based Canton Group, doing computer work for the school.
    
It includes the text of online communications in which Helkowski allegedly said he posted the information to demonstrate to university officials that their system was vulnerable.
    
The university has said the disclosure wasn't related to an earlier security breach involving personal information for about 288,000 faculty, staff, students and others.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
