Suzette Kugler, a former database administrator at PenAir, will serve a fiver-year probation sentence for hacking the airline’s database. The database was for its ticketing and reservation system. After her removal from the organization, Kugler hacked into the system between April and May 2017. It has been assumed this was in retaliation for being fired. Kugler utilized her insider knowledge of the database system to create fake privileged credentials, which she used to destroy critical data and prevent airline employees from booking, ticketing, modifying, and boarding passengers during the attack. A U.S. District Judge sentenced Kugler to five years of probation, 250 hours of community service, and a fine of over $5,000 to PenAir.
