IRS Tax Information Hack Traced to Russia

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service believes the theft of about 100,000 taxpayers' personal data from its computer system originated in Russia, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The tax agency's criminal unit is leading an investigation into the cyber attack, in which criminals stole information through an online IRS application over the course of four months. CNN reports the Treasury Department's inspector general and the Department of Homeland Security are also looking into the breach.
