Computerworld reports that a federal jury has found Rajendrasinh Babubhai Makwana, a former Fannie Mae computer programmer, guilty of one count of computer intrusion.

Last year, Makwana, who was fired from his contract position at Fannie Mae's Urbana, Md., data center, was accused of creating a malware computer time bomb that could have destroyed millions of Fannie Mae files. He pleaded not guilty.

Makwana faces up to 10 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 8.
