Info of Mass Destruction?

Avni Patel has reported in the ABC News blog The Blotter that the Energy Department has now disclosed that a hacker was able to copy 1,500 files from a National Nuclear Security Administration computer in July 2004.

The files reportedly included the names, SSN, security clearances, and work locations for contractors and employees.

Two years ago. Good thing it's not anything important, like national security.

Addendum: CBS News is reporting that the NNSA found out about the theft last September; they notified Congress last Friday, and began contacting those whose information was compromised yesterday.
