Betrayal

How’d you like to wake up to this news, then spend the day wondering if your spouse was one of the 100 unlucky folks at Y-12 today?

Welcome to my world.

When he called a few minutes ago after a late meeting to see if I needed anything on the way home, I had to ask… and he doesn’t yet know the answer. Said he’d have to check his e-mail to find out.

For the NNSA — which sounds quite like an oxymoron at the moment — to know that personal data was stolen and NNSA administrator Linton Brooks knew about it ten months ago, but failed to either inform DOE or the 1,502 affected employees, is absolutely inexcusable.

I don’t know how this is going to end, but hiding bad news and hoping no one will see seems like a particularly poor choice.

    Meanwhile, with the Real ID act, there will now be a nationwide database of all this information just ripe for some idiot to pick.
    Call your CC company, advise em of this, they’ll be able to put a watch on for any suspicious activity. Thats unlikely tho. I believe you can also put up something on your credit report indicating that you’re a victim of ID theft, and anybody adding credit would have to get your OK.
    Constant vigilance!
