2 posts in this topic

WASHINGTON, July 9 (UPI) -- The personal information of an additional 21.5 million people was compromised as part of a data breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the department said Thursday.

OPM said that while officials investigated a breach in which the personal data of 4.2 million current and former federal employees was stolen, they found even more information was compromised.

 

The newly announced data breach involves the personal information of people who underwent background checks with the office, including current, former and prospective federal employees and contractors. The stolen information includes the social security numbers of "19.7 million individuals that applied for a background investigation, and 1.8 million non-applicants, primarily spouses or co-habitants of applicants," a release from OPM said.
