Federal authorities report that a man from Dublin was arrested on Friday after being charged with a felony for allegedly changing employee data at the medical company where he worked after he was about to lose his job.

Following his indictment by a federal grand jury earlier this month, Vamsikrishna Naganathanahall, 47, appeared in federal court in Oakland on Friday.

The indictment claims that Naganathanahalli unlawfully gained access to Vituity's computer network in Emeryville to overwrite thousands of current and former employees' hiring and payroll information.





According to the accusation, Vituity allegedly informed Naganathanahalli in late May last year that he would be fired in the middle of June.

According to officials, he had access to another employee's account before departing the organization, which he used to change the data in September.

On a $100,000 bond, Naganathanahalli was released. June 15 is the date of his subsequent court appearance.
