US Government Warns All Employees of Data Breach

Four million current and former US government employees are being told to take precautions after their personal information became exposed.
Officials said Chinese perpetrators are suspected of carrying out a "massive breach" of the personal records.
Employees have been told to monitor or close bank accounts, freeze credit reports, and change online passwords.
Some have spoken to the BBC expressing fears over how their personal information will be used.
Bryan Sivak, a former technology officer with the Department of Health and Human Services said, "I'm more worried about this information being used to illegally access various networks or against individuals directly."
