Air Force Hacked

You know it's getting bad when the Air Force is hacked.

Actually, they say the person who gained access to personal information (including Social Security numbers)
on 33,000 Air Force officers had a legitimate user's log in information, but even so, should even a legitimate user have access to that much information?

Apparently the officers affected have been advised to monitor their credit reports.

According to the Washington Post, the Air Force has stated: "The incident is being investigated by both military and civilian
law-enforcement agencies. "We are conducting a wall-to-wall review of our
personnel-related data systems to maximize the security of the systems."
