JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The “architect” of the Jaguars’ video board system is accused of repeatedly hacking the giant scoreboards during the 2018 season, after his contract was not renewed by the team, according to an indictment announced Thursday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Samuel Arthur Thompson, 49, who is a registered sex offender, is also charged with having child sex abuse images, illegally possessing a firearm and traveling without notifying authorities.
He was let go, sources told News4Jax, because whistleblowers raised concerns about his criminal history.
Investigators said the account had been used to remotely log into the computer system and send commands to a rogue server that had been placed in the Jaguars’ server room, resulting in the outages.
“He could have exposed them to ransomware, encrypted everything and demanded an extortion payment that would have been untraceable,” Hamer said.
“He could have downed the entire network he could have showed inappropriate content on the big screens during a broadcast.”
Video shows that Thompson was a director when the Jaguars unveiled the new video boards in 2014.
Thompson has been required to register as a sex offender since 1998, when he was convicted in Alabama of second-degree sodomy on a child.
Investigators said that just over a week after the agents searched Thompson’s home, he traveled to the Philippines without reporting his international travel prior to his departure, in violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
Records show Thompson is in federal custody in California.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
