The cybersecurity instructor who posted a video to YouTube showing himself performing an elaborate stunt in a computer lab, saying he was going to crash the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison has resigned from his position, the school said.
John Miller, who is the director of the Cybersecurity and Data Security department at the UW-Madison, posted a brief video Tuesday on YouTube of him sitting in a lab in front of computers, pulling out a remote and then pulling out the camera and video recorder, according to a statement from UW-Milwaukee.
He said the equipment was in a classroom, which he said he would “fly to.”
The video shows Miller sitting in front, with a laptop, a camera and a recorder.
Miller says he was “going to crash this campus.”
Miller, who posted the video in April, told The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he “never imagined it would become such a large thing,” and that he is “very sorry for the damage caused.”
“This was never my intention to hurt anyone or make anyone look bad,” he said in the video, adding that he hoped “people would stop viewing the video and not think that I was doing something wrong.”
Miller did not respond to multiple messages seeking comment.
The university has taken over the investigation, and Miller was placed on administrative leave, the university said.
