Pentagon cyber breach

The Pentagon announced on Friday there has been a cyber breach of Defense Department travel records that includes the compromise of personal information and payment card data from U.S. military and civilian personnel.

“According to a U.S. official familiar with the matter, the breach could have affected as many as 30,000 workers, but that number may grow as the investigation continues. The breach could have happened some months ago but was only recently discovered,” The Associated Press reports
