Pen­tagon breach may af­fect 30,000 work­ers

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - REMEMBERING -

WASH­ING­TON — The Pen­tagon said Fri­day that there has been a cy­ber breach of De­fense Depart­ment travel records that com­pro­mised the per­sonal in­for­ma­tion and credit card data of U.S. mil­i­tary and civil­ian per­son­nel.

Ac­cord­ing to a U.S. of­fi­cial fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter, the breach could have af­fected as many as 30,000 work­ers, but that num­ber may grow as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues. The breach could have hap­pened some months ago but was only re­cently dis­cov­ered.

The of­fi­cial, who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the breach is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, said that no clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion was com­pro­mised.
