Scope hack at the Interior US is much higher than reported’




Hackers would in a burglary at a data center of the US Department of the Interior data of up to 14 million current and former officials have captured. That is considerably more than what the government internal assessment.

That report sources within the US government to press agency AP. According to unnamed government officials hackers have captured data from approximately 9 to 14 million people. These are people who have worked for the government or there is still work, and their job have undergone a background check. This means that personal information about them is collected to determine their suitability for public office; that information is probably in the hands of hackers. The earliest data date back from the 80, according to AP. A spokesman for the White House could not confirm the news, as reported Reuters.

The hack makes it likely for many American workers who are involved in intelligence gathering difficult to do their work. If the rumors are true, then a lot of personal information about American “spies” come under foreign control: the United States itself suspect Chinese hackers have broken it from the servers at Interior. The data could, for example, foreign governments, US officials can extort or accept their identity. Phishing attacks may be carried along.

Last week the US government let themselves know that data of about 4 million people have been stolen. It would include going to social security -numbers and function data. If the information is correct AP’s so much more information stolen, and many more people. Some data would not be stored encrypted, but otherwise little is clear about how the hackers have penetrated.
