The network administrator who changed the passwords to the city of San Francisco's network and locked officials out of sensitive city data handed over the codes today. Terry Childs, who has been in jail since last Sunday for refusing to hand over the codes to the city's data, gave them to Mayor Newsom on Monday. Childs remains in jail on $5 million bail.
