Information The Complaint alleges that Phillips wrote and executed a computer program that permitted him to gain unauthorized access to a database at the University of Texas at Austin and to download tens of thousands of names and social security numbers. On March 5, 2003, Secret Service agents carried out search warrants at Phillips residences in Austin and Houston and seized several computers. On a computer found in his Austin residence, agents recovered downloaded names and social security numbers and the computer program used to access the UT database. U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton commended the efforts of the United States Secret Service, The University of Texas at Austin, and the Texas Attorney Generals Internet Bureau for its handling of this case. Upon learning about the unauthorized computer access, the University immediately contacted law enforcement and cooperated fully in the investigation. The Secret Service, in turn, with the assistance of the Internet Bureau and UT Police Department, responded swiftly to pinpoint the source of the unauthorized accesses, obtain and execute search warrants, identify the suspect, and recover the stolen data as quickly as possible. The University subsequently moved promptly to inform the public and those whose Social Security numbers may have been included in this data theft.
