Vets Might Sue VA Over Laptop Theft
Considering the 26.5 million or so records that went missing, it certainly had an impact on a lot of former service members. For those who missed the initial story, here is a quick recap:
“A laptop and hard drive were stolen last year during a burglary at the home of a Veterans Affairs employee. The equipment contained the names, Social Security numbers and birth dates of veterans discharged since 1975. It was the worst-ever breach of government data.
The equipment was later recovered and the FBI said the sensitive files were neither compromised nor accessed.”
