Man Who Threatened to Bomb Connecticut Company Sentenced to Prison

Dec 14, 2012 (JUSTICE DEPARTMENT DOCUMENTS AND PUBLICATIONS/ContentWorks via COMTEX) -- Man Who Threatened to Bomb Connecticut Company Sentenced to Prison U.S. Attorney's Office December 13, 2012 District of Connecticut (203) 821-3700 David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that SHANEEL JAIN, 56, currently residing in Cumberland, Rhode Island, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to six months of imprisonment, one year of supervised release, and three months of home confinement for threatening to bomb the facilities of a Wallingford company.

On July 23, 2012, a jury found JAIN guilty of one count of making a bomb threat and one count of false information and hoaxes. According to the evidence presented during the trial, Z-Medica Corporation is a Wallingford-based company that produces QuickClot, a medical agent that rapidly stops bleeding outside the surgical setting. QuickClot is used by the United States military and the militaries of some allied countries. On April 23, 2010, JAIN made a series of telephone calls from India to Z-Medica. At the time, JAIN was engaged in a civil lawsuit with Z-Medica based on their prior business relationship. During these phone calls, JAIN threatened to bomb Z-Medica within 24 hours. He also said that he was a terrorist who had done this before and that American law "couldn't touch" him.

As a result of the threat, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Wallingford Police Department, and the Connecticut State Police conducted searches of Z-Medica's facilities. Z-Medica also cancelled shifts, which resulted in an order for QuickClot being delayed. The company also utilized private security for several weeks.

No bomb or other explosive was ever found at Z-Medica.

JAIN was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $12,386.

JAIN has been released on bond since his arrest on March 19, 2012. He was ordered to report to prison on February 8, 2013.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Wallingford Police Department, and the Connecticut State Police. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Neeraj Patel and Jonathan Freimann.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
