    A hack attack targeting federal employees is much worse than the White House administration has let on, said the president of the government workers union. And now a second massive cyberbreach of federal records, reportedly executed by China, has resulted in the theft of sensitive information provided by intelligence and military personnel to obtain security clearances.

    Nearly every one of the millions of U.S. security-clearance holders is said to be impacted by the newest security breach reported Friday evening – including CIA, National Security Agency and military special operations personnel.

    And the TSA failed 69/72 security tests recently and berserking people are breaching the WH regularly and and. Yea, whatever is going on with regards to national security is pretty pathetic.

    It's obvious that the federal government is underfunded. They just need more money.

    Liberals believe government is the savior and protector of peoples lives. This breach is a perfect example of government being the destroyer of peoples lives.

    If they only had a law making it illegal to hack into databases and steal information. :rolleyes:


    This merely proves that the Chimese and Russians can do FAR WORSE than this. Our military machine, and power grid are HIGHLY computerized... throw a little cyber monkey-wrench into the works and..... Poof!

    It's very very bad. They essentially got lifestyle habits, addiction problems, foreign contacts, test results, you name it.. the whole dossier on everyone. A treasure trove for blackmail/turning people.

    There's something to be said for paper only personal files, especially if it's written in ink and not pencil!

    I just went and signed up for credit monitoring service . I don't trust the government to help with any possible credit issues, that might come from this breach.
