Ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn cleared of ‘aggravated pimping’ – The Week Magazine

The president of a union for government workers believes that hackers stole the personnel data and Social Security numbers of every federal employee during a December data breach. In a letter sent Thursday to Office of Personnel Management director Katherine Archuleta and obtained by The Associated Press, J. David Cox, president of the American Federal of Government Employees, wrote that the union believes the “Central Personnel Data File was the targeted database, and the hackers are now in possession of all personnel data for every federal employee, every federal retiree, and up to 1 million former federal employees.” Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who was briefed on the case, said on the Senate floor that the hack was by “the Chinese,” but did not say if it was tied to the government or individuals. China has denied being involved in the hacking.
