Childs has been holding the passwords as hostages in a sense, not giving them out.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the visit was a secret one planned out by Mayor Newsom and defense attorney Erin Crane.

This came under 2 weeks after the 43-year old Terry Childs was arrested for computer tampering.

Childs entered a plea of not guilty and has not cooperated up to this point.

As of now, there is work to be done as officials try to restore and gain full access over the network, setting up new passwords for administrators.
