That’s bad – data on Nuclear agency workers stolen…



According to reuters data on US Nuclear Safety Administration employees (*some 1500) was stolen in a computer cracking incident.


The NNSA is a semi-autonomous arm of the Energy Department and also guards some of the U.S. military’s nuclear secrets and responds to global nuclear and radiological emergencies.

Of course, this happened last SEPTEMBER…. which is also disturbing (delayed notification.) But what concerns me more is the social engineering possibilities there are on that employee list, more so than identity theft with regards to financial information.
