Everything is awesome:
More from the AP, via CNBC:
The Associated Press has learned that the Obama administration is scrambling to assess the impact of a massive data breach involving the agency that handles security clearances and employee records.
Federal officials suspect that Chinese hackers are behind the data breach, Dow Jones reported, citing sources.
A congressional aide familiar with the situation, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to discuss it, says the Office of Personnel Management and the Interior Department were hacked. A second U.S. official who also declined to be identified said the data breach could potentially affect every federal agency.
Oh, and did we mention the attack reportedly happened in April?
Go, go gadget government!
And talk about fantastic news timing, huh? More
