The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Data Breach – RATE THIS HACK

By | October 27, 2015

opmThe Office of Personnel Management released a statement which underestimated the number of people whose fingerprints were stolen in a data breach that officials said originated in China. The federal agency said 5.6 million people’s fingerprints were compromised—not 1.1 million, as previously thought.

Some consider it to be the greatest hack of the United States government of all time.

Earlier this month, the Defense Department awarded
a $133 million contract to an identity-theft-protection-services company to monitor the hacked data.
