Sensitive information about all federal employees in the United States was stolen in a data breach which occurred last year, according to an American union.
- Hackers are now in possession of personal information about all federal employees, all retired federal employees and up to a million former federal employees, according to a letter the American Federation of Government Employees has sent to the authorities.
The stolen information includes addresses, birth dates, salary and length of service in the military.
Last week the US government admitted that personal information about at least four million current and former federal employees had been stolen in a data breach in the Office of Personnel Management.
The IT attack allegedly took place last December, but the incident was not discovered until April. It is suspected that Chinese hackers may have been behind the attack.
