“The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has been hacked once again. The incident has resulted in the personal details – including social security numbers – of 14,000 current and former employees being compromised.

According to The Wall Street Journal, on Wednesday, the DOE sent out emails to the impacted individuals, warning them that their personally identifiable information (PII) might have been stolen by cybercriminals in the attack that took place at the end of July.”
