Second major breach: Now, US intelligence and military data targeted

  • Hackers, believed to be based in China, may have accessed information on American military and intelligence personnel, US officials say.

    This is potentially the second major hack attack with suspected links to China after last week’s revelations about a breach involving US government employees’ data.

    According to media reports, the latest hack targeted forms, which intelligence and military officials submit for security clearance, and the stolen data could be potentially used for blackmailing.
