US Navy reports about the unauthorized access to confidential information, including social security numbers of 134386 current and former sailors. Despite the fact that there is no information about the using of this data, but this event is an extremely serious danger.

Vice Admiral Robert P. Burke said: «The Navy takes this incident extremely seriously - this is a matter of trust for our sailors».

The leakage has happened because of hacking the laptop of one of the employees of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, working under contract with the US Navy.
