laptop computer and hard drive with sensitive data on up to 26.5
million veterans and military personnel.
The FBI said Thursday there is no evidence that anyone accessed Social Security numbers and other data on the equipment.
Affairs Secretary Jim Nicholson, in announcing the recovery of the
computer, said there have been no reports of identity theft stemming
from the May 3 burglary at a VA employee's Maryland home.
FBI, in a statement from its Baltimore field office, said a preliminary
review of the equipment by its computer forensic teams “has determined
that the data base remains intact and has not been accessed since it
was stolen.” More tests were planned, however.
Nicholson said the laptop and hard drive were turned in to the FBI. No suspects were in custody.
From CNN. So some punk kid who broke into his house finally watched the news and figured he better turn it in. Good move. I know this will make many veterens very happy.
