Pentagon breach may affect 30,000 workers
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.
