Some People Just Don't Know When to Stop

A former corporate executive, currently under home detention since his October 2007 arrest on charges of looting his company of funds has been accused of trying to bypass (unsuccessfully) security monitoring software installed on his home system, even after he promised (via his lawyers) that the attempts to defeat the security system would cease.

From the various news reports and unhappy shareholder comments from across the internet, this effort to bypass the rules, including only being partially successful, doesn't appear to be out of character for someone who has been accused of emptying his company of value and spending the money through a number of personal relationships that are ethically dubious at best.

If you are trying to get the conditions of your home detention reduced, then hacking the monitoring software that is a part of that detention probably isn't the smartest move to make.
