Man Who Tried to Install Computer Virus Sentenced

Montgomery County (AP)-Federal prosecutors say a man who tried to install a virus on Fannie Mae computers in Maryland has been sentenced to 41 months in prison.

Thirty-six-year-old Rajendrasinh Makwana of Montgomery County was sentenced on Friday. He was convicted of computer intrusion in October.

According to evidence presented at trial, Makwana had been fired as a contract worker at Fannie Mae's Urbana facility. Makwana programmed a computer with a malicious code that was set to spread throughout the Fannie Mae network and destroy all data.

Washington-based Fannie Mae is the largest U.S. mortgage finance company.
