Personal Data For More Than 130,000 Sailors Hacked

What kind of lowlife would do something like this to the men and women of our armed forces? Not only is it despicable, the majority of these guys don't have any money to steal in the first place. Hopefully the hackers realize that pissing off the military isn't worth trying to sell their info.

Hackers gained access to sensitive information, including Social Security numbers, for 134,386 current and former U.S. sailors, the U.S. Navy said on Wednesday. It said a laptop used by a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services employee working on a U.S. Navy contract was hacked. Hewlett Packard informed the Navy of the breach on Oct. 27 and the affected sailors will be notified in the coming weeks, the Navy said.
