Hackers stole 5.6 million government fingerprints – more than estimated

CNN Money – September 25, 2015

The Office of Personnel Management said hackers stole 5.6 million fingerprints it had on file. That’s significantly higher than the agency’s original estimate of 1.1 million fingerprints.

This is extremely sensitive information that poses an immediate danger to American spies and undercover law enforcement agents.

A colossal hack that makes us wince.
We get “the finger.” They get the prints.
