Maybe they waited a day too long

More than 21 million Social Security numbers were compromised in a breach that affected a database of sensitive information on federal employees held by the Office of Personnel Management, the agency announced Thursday.

That number is in addition to the 4.2 million Social Security numbers that were compromised in another data breach at OPM that was made public in June. Officials have privately linked both intrusions to China.
That first hack would be the 4.2 million that turned out to be more like 14 million.  Etc.

Light bloggage for a while.  Because busy, also story to be shared later.

Well, you see, First Sargent, it was like this. (Begins digging a hole that includes mentioning how the Lieutenant was in charge so it's really not their fault.)

stay safe.
