Rogue employees -- ever worked with one?

Breaking news: not every IT employee or security expert is pure as the driven snow. We've all heard whispered stories about good guys going bad -- IT or security employees who've been given the proverbial "keys to the kingdom," only to abuse the privilege, sometimes to the point of taking the organization down with them (as in the infamous Terry Childs case).

So tell us: have you ever worked for a company where a techie with deep security knowledge went off the deep end? What happened, how did the organization handle it, and, most important, what should they have done to stop the individual from going rogue in the first place?

Thanks to all who responded! The resulting story is Security fail: When trusted IT people go bad
