US government employees are the victims of the latest security breach. A contractor for the government has revealed that sensitive information on at least 25,000 workers has been obtained as a result of a cyber attack. The information includes standard personal details like Social Security numbers and birth dates, as well as workers educational and criminal backgrounds. The data is so complete because the hack targeted a company named US Investigations Services, or USIS, which handles background checks for agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security.
